With 9 points from 15 games, the Glovers are currently bottom of English football's second tier but will be the first football club to have their own girl band.

Based on the format of the hugely successful American band The Pussycat Dolls, the group of southwest based dancers will perform with a lead singer, and the plan is for the band to perform at all home matches for the rest of the 2013/14 season.

Following auditions next month, the successful girls will work with The Famous Company to record a single which will be released on iTunes, raising money for Prostate Cancer UK, who the Football League have adopted as their official charity.

The Famous Company boasts an impressive portfolio having previously worked with artists who have performed with Rita Ora, The Saturdays, Conor Maynard, Ed Sherran, Example, N-Dubz, and McFly.

"Yeovil Town are delighted to get involved in this new innovative project," said a club spokesman Adrian Hopper.

"We feel sure the unique chance to have a girl band linking with us as a club will not only launch the group but also help to spread the word of Yeovil Town Football Club to a whole new section of the community, whilst at the same time helping charity from sales of the record."

Auditions for females aged 18 and over will be held at Huish Park on 4 December at 7 pm. To sign-up for an audition visit
