Loan pair arrive to strengthen depleted Glovers


Exeter’s Ben Seymour

Striker Ben Seymour and defender Jordan Dyer have joined on month-long loan deals from Exeter City to boost Yeovil Town’s depleted squad.

The pair both played as trialists in a midweek friendly at Newport County and are expected to be available for next Tuesday’s home match with Maidenhead United in the National League.

Seymour, 22, has made six appearances for Exeter City this season having had prolific loan spells in the lower levels of non-League scoring 14 in 26 games at Dorchester Town in 2018-19.

He was also the first Exeter player to wear their number nine shirt since the passing of Adam Stansfield, a legend at both Huish and St James’ Park

Speaking about the young forward following a  pre-season match against Taunton, Exeter manager Matty Taylor said

“He’s sharp in his movement and quick to the ball and he was trying to speed up one or two of the more senior ones. I could hear his voice on the pitch, which I was absolutely delighted with.

“I have made a real statement by not bringing in another loan centre forward because that position is Ben’s at the moment and  he is improving on a daily basis the more he trains with us. And he scores goals.”

Exeter’s Jordan Dyer

Dyer, 21, has made two first team appearances, both in cup competitions, this season and has also had loan spells at Tiverton Town and Bideford in recent years.

He is described as being able to play “across the backline and midfield” offering useful options to Glovers’ boss Darren Sarll.

Speaking to ECFC.net Taylor said of the deals; “Both players need the opportunity and the game time and this a good opportunity for them. We wish them all the best and we’re really pleased we’ve been able to secure a loan for them. It’s such a strong league so it’ll be a fantastic chance for them.”

With an already thin squad, the boss has been hit by the loss of captain and central defender Luke Wilkinson through injury and striker Adi Yussuf for his red card in the defeat at Boreham Wood last weekend.
