Frontman Jordan Young has signed a two-and-a-half year deal with Yeovil Town having arrived from National League South side Chippenham Town.

The 23-year-old started his career in the youth set-up at Swindon Town when current Glovers’ boss Mark Cooper was in charge at the County Ground, and has scored five times for Chippenham already this season.

Just hours before the frontman – described as “a versatile forward who is able to play across the forward line” by the club’s announcement – Cooper had said he was hoping in bring in new players “in all positions” ahead of Saturday’s trip to Bromley.

Speaking to, he said: “It’s an absolute privilege to be here. I’ve had a bit of interest in me, I spoke to the Gaffer and it went from there.

“Yeovil are a massive club and when the Gaffer spoke to me, I knew it was the right thing to do.

“I can’t wait until Saturday, whether I make my debut or not, I’m really looking forward to it.”

The photographs accompanying his arrival notice suggest he has already trained with his team-mates, and the statement adds that his participation at the weekend is “subject to FA and National League clearance.
