Yemi Odubade succeeded William Allen (who departed for a club in New Zealand) as Youth Development Phase under 9's and 10's lead coach in late December or early January. I've seen linkedin posts that show he has been with City's academy since March 2023.
City finish 6th in the EFL South West Counties Youth League and will be in Merit League Two for the next stage of the season. Victory instead of defeat against bottom club Newport would have taken City to 4th place and Merit League One.
Two games left to play: Swindon are home to Portsmouth...

Sunday 11th February
St Mirren 0 Glasgow Rangers 2
James Scott on as sub 57th minute.
from the bbc match feed:
"James Scott runs off the shoulder and lets one fly from a tight angle, but it's flashed across goal and wide."
Scott has a shot against Celtic!!!
Saturday 10th February
Cribbs 1 Mousehole 2
Mitch Beardmore - Mousehole twitter shows him in starting line-up. Southern League website shows him coming on as a 57th minute sub. Scores the winner.
Dorchester Town 0 Gosport Borough 3
Ed James starts for Dorchester
Pedro Borges starts for Gosport...
City were unbeaten in six, Newport had lost six on the trot. Defeat means City will be in Merit League Two for the second half of the season up against the bottom half teams from the South West and South East Divisions.
I watched from about 20 minutes onwards. Both teams playing a lot of long ball football.
Bair played as a lone target man centre forward. Lost most of his aerial duels. Played a couple of nice touches but generally looked a bit lazy and not up for the fight against Morton’s centre backs...
Officials and their inconsistent decision making.
Jake Caprice would probably like the same committee that made this decision to review his non goal v Salford to increase his career tally of goals by 50%.
