As the more eagle-eyed viewers of the Gloverscast website will recall, we were a little uncertain at the identification of the central defender who played the second half of Yeovil Town’s opening pre-season friendly at Stratford Town.

The game of Guess the Trialist came up with the name of Colin Daniel, an experienced former League defender who was released from Burton Albion at the end of last season.

It appears we were right to be a little questioning as the player in question is actually Robin Dempsey, the younger brother of former Glovers’ midfielder Gary Dempsey who played for us in 2007-8.

The 25-year-old central defender played in the youth set-up at Aston Villa having been signed as 16-year-old back in 2012. He had impressed playing for youth team North End United based in Ballymena and, upon his return from England having not been retained by Villa, for League of Ireland side Waterford.

He appears to have had a spell at another League of Ireland side Wexford following his time at Waterford.

But since then there appears to be no trace of him since he left there in 2017, except for him popping up on trial at Doncaster Rovers earlier this month .
