AFC Bournemouth youth team captain central defender Owen Bevan has joined Yeovil Town on loan until the end of the season to fill the void left by the departure of Alfie Pond.

The 19-year-old arrives just hours after Pond’s loan spell was cancelled following a transfer deadline day move to Wolves.

Glovers’ boss Chris Hargreaves said the move was necessary as he prepares for the visit of York City to Huish Park on Saturday.

He said: “With Alfie Pond departing, we needed another defender in the building, and I’m pleased to welcome Owen to the football club.

Owen is an extremely promising young footballer who is highly thought of by all at Bournemouth.

We believe he can make a real impact on the pitch during his time here, I look forward to working with him.

Bevan arrives at Huish Park just a week after making his Premier League debut as an 82nd minute substitute in the Cherries’ 9-0 thrashing at Liverpool.

He made his first senior appearance for his parent club as a substitute in a Carabao Cup penalty shoot-out win over Norwich City the previous week, and featured in for them in pre-season.

Despite being born in Winchester, the defender has represented Wales at youth level following his progress through the Bournemouth academy which he joined at the age of nine.

He had a spell on loan at Truro City in January before signing his first professional contract at Dean Court in March.
