Also, once the 12 months is up and I cancell site match, would Yahoo remove me from their index again? or would there be a chance I would remain in there for free like I always used to be until they penalised me for a tiny bit of crosslinking which Ive now cleaned up.
Few days ago my SiteMatch account run out of money and the site was dropped from index until i put money in SiteMatch again.
Is Site Match a way back into Yahoo Search?
Short answer is Yes. However, you are subject to the quality review, which means your site should be clean with good quality content. See the Yahoo! SPAM guidelines for further information.

You will return to the status you had pre-Site Match. So if you were in the index via the free crawl you will remain there. However your ranking may have changed, for a large number of reasons. i.e. the index could've grown in size, the algorithm may of changed etc.
i applied and was accepted in SiteMatch but that did not fix the problem with penalty.
Speak to your reseller. That is part of what you pay fees for - for them to support you.
If you want specific information relating to your site, you can sticky mail me.
Which is really annoying, since the number 2 listing for one of our keywords is a site that has to be using redirects or some other spam technique to make itself show up. The keyword isn't visible at all in the page that comes up (what comes up is a page of graphic ads). But that spammy site comes up month after month as the second listing for the keyword (which also happens to be our site name). Meanwhile, our site, which doesn't use any spamming techniques, is demoted so it only shows up if you type in the entire domain name. SiteMatch has not changed that.
You can be penalized and accepted through Sitematch but that will not change anything.
