According to Stratford Town’s official website, Yeovil Town have signed midfielder Will Dawes from the Southern League Premier Central Division side.
Speaking to Stratford’s official site, Dawes said: “I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be moving on to Yeovil and I can’t thank Jed (McCrory) enough for the work he has down for me and what he’s done to get this move and I’m really excited to get started down there.”
Dawes, who turns 22 next week is clearly highly thought of at Stratford and was given a glowing reference (in a very succint statement) by their chairman, Jed McCrory. We’ve heard that name before…
“Ok we have had three interested parties in Dawsey and he chose to got Yeovil, as it is close to his family home. We are saddened to see him go but delighted that we have moved a play on to a higher level again.
“Dawsey has been a delight for the few years he has been here and improved beyond belief.”
He continued: “Dawsey deserves his chance to move up the leaguess and I believe he will be a div 1 player quickly due to his desire and ability.
“Dawsey shows everyone at Stratford town and players in the community, join Stratford and see what can be achieved.
He concluded: “We are all so proud of Dawsey and sad we won’t see him on a Saturday but never say never as we strive to get to conference prem.”
We’ll await official confirmation from Yeovil Town on this one, but it sounds like Stratford have gone early. There’ll be a conversation at the next Max Mae Ltd board meeting one presumes.
