Goalkeeper Ted Cann has returned to Yeovil Town on a short-term loan deal from Championship side West Bromwich Albion.
The 21-year-old played three times in January 2020 when he was brought in to cover for an injury to Stuart Nelson.
Having made his debut in a 4-0 FA Trophy win over Hampton & Richmond, Cann played in a 2-2 home draw with Hartlepool United and a 1-0 defeat at Woking – beaten by a worldie from Shaun Donnellan in the latter game!
There is no indication in the club’s statement as to whether the arrival of the young stopper means there is an injury to first-choice Grant Smith, although manager Darren Sarll did say Smith had not trained ahead of the draw at Notts County a fortnight ago.
We will have to wait until the Friday morning press conference and then hope a member of the assembled media thinks to ask the manager.
Since returning to The Hawthorns, Cann has been a regular in West Brom’s under-23s side and has been on loan at National League North strugglers AFC Telford United since the end of November.
It’s not been an easy time for the second-from-bottom side who have conceded 33 times in the 19 matches since his arrival.
He goes in to the matchday squad for tomorrow’s visit to bottom-of-the-table Dover Athletic with Yeovil looking for their first win since the end of January.
Welcome back to Huish Park, Ted!
