Match Report:

Yeovil Town fell to a disappointing defeat this afternoon in the final match of their 2008-09 season, as two goals from Colchester United early in the first half threatened to finish the match as quickly as it had started. Strikes from Ashley Vincent and Mark Yeates from the edge of the box won't have pleased goalkeeper Chris Weale too much, as he failed to grasp the sort of strikes that he would normally find meat'n'drink. The second half saw an improved performance as the Glovers put Colchester under a degree of pressure with Keiran Murtagh striking the post, Craig Alcock's acrobatic volley and Jonathan Obika's shots testing Colchester keeper Dean Gerkin, but far too many times, the Glovers tried to walk the ball into the net, and their dominances in possession counted for nothing in the end.

Final Score: Yeovil Town 0 Colchester United 2.
