Yeovil Town manager Darren Sarll has confirmed he spoke with outgoing midfield Charlie Lee about finding a suitable replacement which led to the signing of Dale Gorman.

Speaking prior to the King’s Lynn game Sarll said “I was really worried about replacing Charlie (Lee)’s charachter and I sat with Charlie and said ‘Chaz, you are a dying breed, how do I replace you?’ he said ‘ you know there’s one lad out there who can do that… Dale Gorman’. so off  we went and tried to do the deal with Glentoran, which was not simple but we got there.”

Gorman and Sarll have known each other for a while, something which the gaffer thinks will stand them both in good stead.

“Dale Gorman might be new to Yeovil, but he’s not to Darren Sarll, I’ve known him for a third of his life, it’s an easy one, I know how to manage him straight away, I know what he does – he’s a horrible little Irish man – he’s not very nice when it comes to winning and losing”

“It’s lovely to have him back, I’ve known him since he was a teenager, he’s a smashing chap”

Gorman, like a number of others is likely to make his Glovers’ debut in front of a home crowd when Yeovil host King’s Lynn on Saturday
