Yeovil Town have confirmed the signing of Sam Pearson from Bristol City on an initial one-month loan.
The attacker has made five appearances for Bristol City in the Championship since debuting in March 2021 and spent time on loan at Inverness Caledonian Thistle earlier this year.
The 20-year-old Welshman has also been capped by by Wales at an U21 level.
Speaking to YTFC.net, Pearson said: “I’m delighted to be here. I got a text the other week about coming here, now it’s about trying to play in as many games as I can and helping the team progress.
“The first time I spoke to the manager was yesterday, he called me when I was having my haircut! He sounds nice and willing to help me progress, so that’s why I’m here!”
Chris Hargreaves adde: “Sam is an exciting young player who adds a new element to our squad. He comes from a strong background at Bristol City and already has first team experience under his belt.”
Pearson also made 17 appearances for Bath City in the 19/20 season, before a loan at W*ymouth at the start of 20/21 season which was cut short due to the travel between Cardiff and W*ymouth. (Of all the places to commute to!)
Speaking at the time, then ‘muff manager Brian Stock said: “He’s a young lad [he was 18 at the time], he lives in Cardiff. He’s found the travelling and commitment at his age a bit of a struggle. It’s proving too much too soon for him. He’s an exciting prospect and I’m upset to lose him.”
Good luck at Yeovil Town Sam – let’s hope we have you for more than a month!
