Latest Yeovil Town News (Page 2)

New signing Jordan Thomas is named among the substitutes as Yeovil Town continue their pre-season campaign with a trip to Frome Town this afternoon (3pm kick-off).

The full-back, who sat out Tuesday’s night’s 5-1 win at Melksham Town in the opening friendly, is named among the substitute for the match at Badgers’ Hill.

There is another start for trialist Jacob Roddy, released by Charlton Athletic’s academy in the summer, but no sign of youngster Sam Tisdale, the son of ex-Glovers’ midfielder and former Exeter City manager, Paul, after his appearance in midweek.

Under-18s defender Jacob Shore is missing after suffering a thigh strain which forced him off early in the last game, but Josh Ansell gets a place on the bench alongside Corey Koerner, who impressed in the second half at Melksham.

Striker Harvey Greenslade, who bagged a brace against Melksham, starts up front ahead of Sam PearsonFrank Nouble and Dylan Morgan.

Yeovil Town (4-3-2-1): Ollie Wright, Michael Smith, Morgan Williams, Jake Wannell, Jacob Roddy, Matt Worthington, Sonny Blu Lo-Everton, Sam Pearson, Frank Nouble, Dylan Morgan, Sam Pearson, Frank Nouble, Dylan Morgan, Harvey Greenslade.

Substitutes: Matt Gould, Jordan Thomas, Alex Whittle, Finn Cousin-Dawson, Aaron Jarvis, Jordan Young, Brett McGavin, Charlie Cooper, Corey Koerner, Josh Ansell, Jordan Stevens.

Tom Bailey is back with transfer round up of the National League, including Glovers corner…


Glovers’ Corner

Before we dive into the National League ins and outs, let’s look at the former Glovers that have moved about in the last couple of weeks. We may miss a few, so if any of you see any we may have missed, tag us on Facebook or Twitter (or X), or leave a comment below and we’ll add them in the next week’s round-up!

A much quieter week for former Glovers, Wes Fogden was the first mover of the week as he signed for Dorchester Town, following his former boss Tom Killick from Poole. Gabby Osho has also moved, signing with Ligue 1 side Auxerre, following 71 league appearances for Luton Town.

Just squeezing into this week’s roundup is Sessi D’Almeida – he’s heading off to Cyprus, signing for Apollon Limassol from Pau.

Two goals from new signing striker Harvey Greenslade and another from fellow frontman Aaron Jarvis saw Yeovil Town get their pre-season campaign underway with a comfortable victory at Southern League Division One South side Melksham Town on Tuesday night.

Manager Mark Cooper fielded two different XIs in each half which included trialist left-back Jacob Roddy and the son of former Exeter City manager and Glovers’ midfielder, Paul Tisdale, Sam. Pre-season is all about a bit of guess work on who some of these players are, isn’t it?

It was last season’s top-scorer Jordan Young who gave the visitors the lead after six minutes before Jarvis added a second just before the half-hour mark. Melksham pulled one back after new signing goalkeeper/goalkeeper coach Matt Gould parried an effort to their striker, before a double from Greenslade sandwiched a great effort from Dylan Morgan.
 

First half

The starting XI included first outings in green-and-white for on-loan Southampton goalkeeper Ollie Wright, defender Finn Cousin-Dawson and striker Aaron Jarvis, who were all additions to the summer. There was also an appearance for trialist defender Jacob Roddy, who was released by Charlton Athletic’s academy in the summer after a spell on loan at Oxford City in the National League Premier last season, starts at left wing-back.

Under-18s’ defender Jacob Shore was also in the starting line-up as part of a three-man defence alongside Cousin-Dawson and Alex Whittle, playing as a left-sided central defender. Michael Smith was the wing-back on the right side with Roddy on the left. Defender Jordan Thomas, signed from Hampton & Richmond in the summer, was a notable absentee in the squad, but he was at the game.

It was a bright start from the Glovers with Charlie Cooper fizzing an effort wide after just four minutes before Jordan YOUNG put them ahead on six minutes. He beat his defender with a burst of pace and fired an effort which went under the Melksham keeper and in to the bottom corner.

Shore was forced off after just 13 minutes following a collision and was replaced by a trialist Tisdale.

There was no team-sheet available from the home side, so best we can say is one of the Melksham players dragged an effort wide on 19 minutes before Young had an effort turned around the post by the keeper following good work from Alex Whittle, player as a left-sided central defender alongside Cousin-Dawson and then Shore/Tisdale.

On 27 minutes, Jarvis worked the keeper with an effort before JARVIS got his first goal in green-and-white when he was on the end of a stinging shot from Michael Smith which snuck past two Melksham defenders.

There was an effort for the home side which Wright comfortably dealt with before Charlie Cooper whipped in a corner which became more like a shot.

Half time: Melksham Town Yeovil Town 2

 

Second half

The only survivor of the XI which started the first half was Tisdale, with goalkeeper/goalkeeper coach Matt Gould taking over in goal, Koerner coming in as left-back, Brett McGavin made his first outing in midfield and Harvey Greenslade came in up front. There was also a place for Jordan Stevens.

Greenslade, the Glovers’ first summer signing following his release by League One Bristol Rovers, made an immediate impression after cutting in from the right side and forcing a smart stop out of the Melksham keeper after 50 minutes.

Dylan Morgan was the next to test the keeper two minutes later and the home side pulled a goal back on 57 minutes. Gould parried an effort straight back to the Melksham NUMBER NINE (still no name) and he turned home the rebound.

But, just after the hour mark, Greenslade restored the two-goal advantage for the visitors. Sam Pearson broke away rapidly following a Melksham corner before picking out GREENSLADE who made a great finish.

Trialist Jacob Roddy, who appeared in both halves. Picture courtesy of Mark Kelly.

Stevens showed his pace on 63 minutes charging down the right before picking out Frank Nouble whose effort went just wide. On 71 minutes, Jacob Roddy replaced Tisdale Junior going to left centre-back, before Dylan MORGAN made it 4-1 with a great bit of skill to beat his defender and then fired home.

On 80 minutes, it was 5-1 when McGavin’s free-kick cannoned back off the bar (we knew he can hit them!) and GREENSLADE was on the spot to fire home the rebound.

A good run-out for the majority of the first-team squad along with a couple of trialists and a couple of Under-18s players. Mark Cooper takes his side to Frome Town for their second pre-season friendly on Saturday.

Full time: Melksham Town 1 Yeovil Town 5

First half – Yeovil Town (3-5-2): Ollie Wright, Jacob Roddy, Alex Whittle, Michael Smith, Jacob Shore (for Sam Tisdale, 13), Finn Cousin-Dawson, Matt Worthington, Charlie Cooper, Sonny Blu Lo-Everton, Jordan Young, Aaron Jarvis.

Second half – Yeovil Town (3-5-2): Matt Gould, Sam Tisdale (for Jacob Roddy, 71), Morgan Williams, Jake Wannell, Corey Koerner, Brett McGavin, Dylan Morgan, Jordan Stevens, Sam Pearson, Frank Nouble, Harvey Greenslade.

Goals: Jordan Young 6 (1-0), Aaron Jarvis 27 (2-0), Number Nine 57  (2-1),  Harvey Greenslade 61 (3-1), Dylan Morgan 74 (4-1), Harvey Greenslade 80 (5-1).

Jordan Stevens is the surprise addition to the Yeovil Town substitutes’ bench as they kick-off their pre-season campaign with a trip to Southern League Division One South side Melksham Town tonight (7.45pm kick-off).

The winger was released by the Glovers at the end of last season but has been spotted with the squad in pre-season training, therefore it is uncertain whether he is simply regaining fitness with Mark Cooper’s side or something more significant.

In the starting XI, there are first outings in green-and-white for on-loan Southampton goalkeeper Ollie Wright, defender Finn Cousin-Dawson and striker Aaron Jarvis, who were all additions to the summer. The trialist in the starting XI is Jacob Roddy, who was released by Charlton Athletic’s academy in the summer after a spell on loan at Oxford City in the National League Premier last season, starts at left wing-back.

Under-18s’ defender Jacob Shore in also in the starting line-up with team-mate Corey Koerner on the bench,

On the bench are new signings goalkeeper/goalkeeper coach Matt Gould, midfielder Brett McGavin and striker Harvey Greenslade, along with another trialist Sam Tisdale, the teenage son of former Exeter City manager and ex-Glovers’ midfielder, Paul. <insert ‘big night for the Trialist Family here>

Yeovil Town: Ollie Wright, Alex Whittle, Michael Smith, Jacob Shore, Finn Cousin-Dawson, Matt Worthington, Charlie Cooper, Sonny Blu Lo-Everton, Jordan Young, Aaron Jarvis, Jacob Roddy (Trialist).
Substitutes: Matt Gould, Morgan Williams, Jake Wannell, Sam Pearson, Frank Nouble, Brett McGavin, Dylan Morgan, Harvey Greenslade, Corey Koerner, Jordan Stevens, Sam Tisdale (Trialist).

Yeovil Town have announced their squad numbers for the upcoming season.

There a couple of headlines with neither Jordan Maguire-Drew or Will Buse given a number ahead of the new campaign.

Southampton Loanee Ollie Wright takes the Number 1, whilst JM-D’s number 10 shirt has been given to Frank Nouble – who last season wore 30.

Morgan Williams takes his fifth different number (2, 13, 17, 29 for those wondering) as a Glover and becomes the first YTFC player to be given the number four since the passing of Lee Collins.

New signings Aaron Jarvis (9), Finn Cousin-Dawson (5), Brett McGavin (14), Matt Gould (22), Jordan Thomas (2), and Harvey Greenslade (27) are handed their first number in Green and White.

Yeovil Town’s pre-season friendly schedule gets underway with a trip to Melksham Town on Tuesday night, 7.45pm kick-off.

The trip to Wiltshire will be the first opportunity for Glovers’ fans to get eyes on new signings strikers Aaron Jarvis and Harvey Greenslade, midfielder Brett McGavin and on-loan keeper Ollie Wright (among others!) in green-and-white.

We have played Melksham before, most recently in pre-season 2019, straight after the relegation from the Football League, when an XI made up mostly of trialists were thrashed 6-0 – so presumably not very good trialists.

If you are making the trip to the Oakfield Stadium, here’s a few details you might need to know…..

Who are they?
Melksham Town play in the Southern League Division One South and in the 2023/24 season finished it fourth from bottom of the league, that’s three divisions below the National League Premier.

This will be their second game of pre-season having hosted League One Bristol Rovers on Friday night, going down to a 4-2 defeat. The Gas fielded an XI featuring a number of youngsters and went 2-0 up early in the second half before pegged back to 2-2 by Melksham around the hour mark. Rovers’ new signing, defender Dan Ellison who joined from Chippenham Town in the summer, enjoyed his return to Wiltshire scoring twice in that game. 

Melksham are managed by Mark Collier who joined in November 2022 having had experience in Wiltshire football with Chippenham and Swindon Supermarine. 

Ticket information
Tickets are available on Eventbrite – click here to buy – and there is a booking fee attached which explains the weird prices. Adult: £11.55, OAPs: £9.38, 14-16 years: £5.04, 6-13 years: £2.88.

How to get there
The Oakfield Stadium has been Melksham’s home since 2017 when they moved to a purpose-built stadium which they share with the local rugby club which plays on a pitch adjacent to the football pitch. As such stadiums often are, Melksham is a cashless stadium and operates CARD ONLY – only make sure you take your cards with you.

Address: The Oakfield Stadium, Eastern Way, Melksham, Wiltshire, SN12 7GU.
Parking: There is free parking at the stadium.

Not the main stand at Oakfield Stadium, home of Melksham Town.

Directions: 

Road: If the traffic is kind to you, the journey from Yeovil to Melksham should be around 1 hour and 15 minutes by road.
The quickest route is to take the A303 west and then on to the A350 just before you get to Chicklade. From there you stay on the A350 past Warminster and through Westbury, until you reach the edge of Melksham when you take the exit and join Western Way.
Follow Western Way until the Spa roundabout on to Spa Road, at the next roundabout it is the second exit on to Snowberry Lane, and then on to Eastern Way at the roundabout after that. You will skirt around some out-of-town housing estates and then take a right-hand turn towards the Oakfield Stadium – hopefully it’s signposted!

Rail: There is a train station in Melksham, but it’s a fair way from the Oakfield Stadium, so you are probably better off driving or getting a lift. It is about a one-hour walk from the train station, there is a bus (272 towards Devizes) which gets you some of the way there but you will still be doing plenty of walking. If you are ‘committed’ enough to try it for a friendly, you can get South West Trains from Yeovil Pen Mill to Westbury and then the Great Western Railway to Melksham, it’s the train that goes to Swindon that you need. But, if you want to catch a train back, there’s every chance you’ll have a seven-and-a-half hour wait Westbury……..so, yeah, probably don’t take the train!

Tom Bailey is back with transfer round up of the National League, including Glovers corner…


Glovers’ Corner

Before we dive into the National League ins and outs, let’s look at the former Glovers that have moved about in the last couple of weeks. We may miss a few, so if any of you see any we may have missed, tag us on Facebook or Twitter (or X), or leave a comment below and we’ll add them in the next week’s round-up!

Quite a few ex-Glovers on the move this week, with a couple from last season’s squad involved. Zac Bell has joined fellow National League side Maidenhead United following his release from Bristol City, while another right back from last season, Brooklyn Genisi… yep, think that’s how it’s spelled… has joined W*ymouth following his release from Swindon Town. Best of luck to both Bell and Genisi… yep, still think that’s it.

Zac Bell.

A few more moves from up and down the football pyramid, as Jordan Dyer moves further south, joining Jay Foulston at Torquay United following a couple of seasons under Jerry Gill at Bath City. Craig Eastmond and Omar Sowunmi have both left Sutton United, with Eastmond joining Wealdstone in the National League, and Sowunmi returning to his former employers, and now EFL side Bromley.

Charlie Bateson has joined Shepton Mallet on a permanent basis following his loan spell with the side last season, while an older head has moved too, as Luke Wilkinson has joined National League South outfit Salisbury, following his departure from Woking.

A much more obscure name moves among the EFL, as Callum Morton, who I’ve been reliably informed by our very own Ben Barrett, featured in our academy a few years ago, has moved from Salford City to Northampton Town on a loan deal. Finally, a name more familiar to recent Yeovil years is Jordan Barnett, who has tumbled down the pyramid in recent seasons. He leaves Shaftesbury, and joins Abbey Hey, who recently won promotion from the North West Counties League Division One South… Step 10 in English football.

A man who hasn’t got a new club, but has been seen out and about, is Asmir Begovic, the experienced ‘keeper was spotted in training with Aldershot Town this week keeping fit for the season ahead.

Ed Francis joins Exeter City in the EFL on a permanent move, before Marcus Dinanga, who scored two in our FA Cup clash last season, made a permanent move to EFL side Bromley. Two big departures from the club, but they’ve had many over the seasons, let’s see how they cope without their star men.

It’s also worth mentioning a quick congratulations to Maidenhead following the transfer of Max Kilman from Wolves to West Ham this week. Kilman was signed by Wolves from Maidenhead, in which a sell-on clause was included.
