The Club's absence from the Southern League was short-lived, however, for Yeovil & Petters United
made a triumphant return to the Southern League in the 1931/32 season by winning the Western League Section -
finishing one point ahead of Plymouth Argyle Reserves. The team also remained in Division II of the
London Combination, however, finishing in third position.
With the team also reaching the Second Round Proper of the FA. Cup for the first time, the Club had undoubtedly
got together the best ever to don the 'green and whites'. A new goalscoring record was also set up, Pemberton
netting 69 and all the other forwards reaching double figures in a total of 225 goals. The total gate money
for the season was £4,787.
At the end of the season, no fewer than five players were transferred to Football League clubs,
McAndrew (to Bristol Rovers), Pemberton (Millwall), Millington (Tottenham Hotspur),
Jordan (Bradford City) and
Molloy (Swansea Town).

Even though the season was such a success, the Directors of the Club were very worried about the falling
off in attendances. At the A.G.M. it was reported that they were to appeal to the townspeople of Yeovil,
as it was felt that they were not supporting the Club to the same extent as the people from the outlying
districts. It was also intimated at the A.G.M. that the Club had been able to aquire the freehold of the Huish
field and to provide increased accommodation.
The Company also secured additional land at the Brewery end of
the playing pitch. It was not possible at the time to say how the purchase was to be financed, but the Chairman
was able to say that a substantial amount had been loaned to the Club at a nominal interest rate for the period
that football was carried on at Huish.
