Yeovil Town manager Mark Cooper has told the Gloverscast that he has built his squad for the new season expecting that midfielder Scott Pollock would be playing elsewhere.

But, he has not (quite) closed the door on the former Boston United player’s career at Huish Park, revealing that he is waiting for him to regain fitness after a knee injury before making a decision.

He told us: “Scott joined us in early March and he was injured, he had not played for Boston for a couple of months.

He didn’t play for three or four weeks when he joined us, but we didn’t have enough bodies and he had to play.

Over the summer he has had a couple of more scans and he has still going a problem with his knee, so we are waiting for that to clear up.

He is doing his rehab closer to his home and once he is fit we will see what the future holds.

Asked if he would want to keep the 22-year-old, Cooper added: “I had been told earlier in the summer that he has not going to be here, he was going somewhere else.

So I recruited with that in mind, I recruited without him and now we have got a balance (in the squad) there has to be a balance.

We have to make sure those books are balanced and once Scott is fit we will make a decision as to where he goes.

Pollock arrived from Boston United at the start of March as one of a number of players signed under the ‘stewardship’ of SU Glovers, the group led by Matt Uggla which attempted to buy the club at the end of last season which eventually saw the Glovers relegated.

Uggla has subsequently taken over at National League York City and brought in Zanda Siziba and Callum Harriott, who both featured for Yeovil at the end of last season, with Pollock widely tipped to follow him to Yorkshire.

The one-time Hashtag United and Northampton Town player managed seven appearances for the club last season with his final appearance (of last season) being the 1-0 defeat at Boreham Wood on the final day of the season.
