Yeovil Town’s final day victory over Altrincham saw two young Glovers make their first league starts, Ollie Haste played the final few moments but it was Max Evans who put in a cracking performance on debut to keep a clean sheet in goal.

When talking to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins he said he was delighted with his first league start.

“I enjoyed it, it was good to get the number 1 down.”

“(The clean sheet) was the main thing, helped the boys out, they helped me out many times, it was a good start.”

He thanked the experienced members of the squad, name checking Mark Little and Josh Staunton for their contributions during the game even if he wasn’t expecting to get his debut under the Glovers’ stand in player manager.

“I had a chat with him (Staunton), he was happy for me to get the game which was nice…

“… me and Grant (Smith) get along really well, it’s been a really good season, my first full season in men’s football, it’s been really good and I can’t wait to have many more hopefully.”

One Man of the Match performance in the bag for Max, here’s to many more.
