There were a few names which Glovers’ fans might have been expecting to see on the team sheet for the Somerset Premier Cup tie against Cheddar, who were missing, we’ve done some digging and this is why a few young Glovers were missing.
● Ollie Haste was away on international duty with the English Colleges FA. He played from the start against Wales today, earning his second cap. The defender has also been playing for Southern League Division One South side Barnstaple Town.
● Pedro Borges came off the bench against Bridgwater United and starred against Larkhall Athletic back in November, but has now signed scholarship forms at Exeter City and represents their Under 18s.
● Korey Andrews, who also made a couple of appearances from the bench in the SPC. He has now joined Western League Premier Division side Street and represents them in their first team.
However, there was a good representation of the Under-18s side in the squad which faces Cheddar tonight with defenders Mason Hunter and Finlay Ridout both named in the starting XI.
On the bench, there are places for Callum Smalley, Sam Hodges, Benjani Junior, the son of the former Manchester City and Portsmouth striker, and Fin Skiverton, one of Terry’s three sons who played and scored against Bridgwater United in a previous round and has been playing for Street recently.
As promised by manager Darren Sarll, there are starts for goalkeeper Max Evans, and midfield spots for Alex Bradley and Toby Stephens.
Yeovil Town (4-4-2): Max Evans, Mason Hunter, Finlay Ridout, Morgan Williams, Jordan Barnett, Matthew Worthington, Toby Stephens, Alex Bradley, Sonny Blu Lo-Everton, Adi Yussuf, Reuben Reid. Substitutes: Callum Smalley, Sam Hodges, Joshua Sutton, Aidan Skiverton, Benjani Junior.
Cheddar (5-4-1) Dan Jackson, Kyle Sampson, Jamie Laird, Joe Woodley, Steve Holland, Chris Coombs, Kris Bell, Ricky Bennett, Ethan Reed, Harry Taylor, Robbi Maggs. Substitutes: Webster, Groom, Biggs, Hucker, March.
