Yeovil Town have confirmed the re-signing of Lawson D’Ath until the end of the season.

The midfielder, who has been a popular addition to the BBC commentaries this season (sorry, Ben!), will finally be back on the pitch, after rehabilitating at the club for nine months.

Speaking to the club website, D’Ath said: “I’m absolutely buzzing to be back involved and available again for this club, but also for the gaffer who I have huge respect for. I can’t wait to play for him again, a manager that will go right to the top! 

“It’s been a long tough nine months and I’m so lucky to have great people in my life who’ve allowed me to keep the dream going. So, a massive thank you to my family, gaffer, Terry, Craig, Scott, Adam, Martin, Simon, and my teammates past and present. 

“The hard work starts now though. We will give it everything until the end of the season. With your support, who knows what can happen?”

Lawson D’Ath suffered a knee injury in the final game of last season.

Darren Sarll said: “Of all the players we could have signed this year Lawson was the one I wanted the most. 

“He has been with the club since my appointment, and he has seen the very best and worst during his time. He has remained loyal when he could have drifted away, and nothing pleases me more than to have him back involved with the squad. 

“There is no one I trust more. A wonderful player but an even better person. He will lift us from now until the end of the season.”

Speaking in August, Sarll made no secret of his desire to sign D’Ath when the opportunity arose, he said: “I am desperate for Lawson to get back in our shirt and play because at the end of last year I saw a different Lawson, there was a maturity to him. He is a very good player, so Scott (Priestnall, the club chairman) if you are listening, I want Lawson for January!”

Welcome back Lawson, we can’t wait to see you back on the pitch!
