Yeovil-born full-back Brooklyn Genesini has joined the club on loan from League Two Swindon Town until the end of the season.

With regular right-back Michael Smith expected to be missing for tomorrow’s trip to Slough Town with a hamstring injury, the former AFC Bournemouth academy product has arrived and will be in contention for a starting place in the National League South clash.

The 22-year-old has made nine appearances for Swindon this season with his last outing coming as a substitute in a 3-0 home defeat to Barrow on December 16th.

Asked about potential incomings at his Thursday press conference, Glovers’ boss Mark Cooper said: “I only want a player to come if he is desperate to play for Yeovil, I don’t want someone to come here to do us a favour. I want someone who is desperate to be here and get a promotion on their CV. So, unless it is one of them, we will not bring anyone in. If I find one of them, I will bring him in.

One assumes therefore that the local lad is one of those desperate to do well for his hometown team.

Gensini’s parent club has confirmed he will be with us until the end of the season and we await further details out of Huish Park.

Having started his career with the Cherries, the 22-year-old spent time on loan at Poole Town in 2021 and at Danish First Division side Næstved in 2022 where he was coached by former Liverpool defender Daniel Agger.

He played just once for Bournemouth, scoring his side’s second goal in a League Cup tie with Norwich City in August 2022, and arrived at Swindon in August 2023. 

We hope you (and we) enjoy your time at Huish Park, Brooklyn!
