Darren Sarll has spoken to YTFC.net about the latest Glovers signing, Mark Little, emphasising what a coup Little’s signing is for Yeovil Town.

The Yeovil manager said: “This is brilliant, brilliant signing for us. This is a lad who’s not even played in League Two. This is a League One, Championship fullback. Everyone I’ve spoken to has told me (he’s a) brilliant character, good talker. Were almost trying to reinvent a different style of footballer to Carl Dickinson. That age, that experience, that level that they’ve played at, they have a standard to their work. They understand the things you have to do to in order to get promoted and Mark covers all those boxes.”

The 32-year-old’s signing from Bristol Rovers was announced yesterday, and adds ‘character’ and importantly to the manager, another ‘talker’. Sarll said: “It’s a lot of character that comes in. Same with Grant Smith – brilliant talker. Same with Morgan Williams – brilliant talker. There’s a theme, I know. It’s such an important part and we were very quiet last year because of our age and inexperience. Mark’s a coup for the football club.”

Sarll also explained his shock when Little gave him a call, and had a conversation with former Glover Charlie Lee about his ex-teammate.

“I was shocked when I was phoned. I then when I spoke with Charlie Lee (who was previously a teammate of Little), Charlie was shocked he’d phoned. Mark’s driving it. Mark’s driving the decision. Marks drove the process. (They’re) brilliant people to deal with. I must say, agents get a lot of stick, Mark’s agent was magnificent. Good guy, very sensible, very reasonable,” Sarll said.

Ex-Yeovil fullbacks Luke Ayling and Ryan Dickson also praised the signing on Twitter.
