Yeovil Town manager Darren Sarll has praised the impact striker Reuben Reid has had since returning for pre-season training.

The 32-year-old forward managed just three goals in 27 appearances for the Glovers last season with only one coming from open play.

But, speaking with BBC Radio Somerset Yeovil Town reporter Sheridan Robins at a training session, the manager said Reid had returned from the summer break looking sharp.

Sarll said: “Reuben has come back (to pre-season training) seven kilograms lighter, his body fat percentage is under 10% and has not had a summer break and committed to his shape and his form.

“I think in that first (training) game there, this is the sharpest his finishing has been.

“Reuben has such football intelligence and I like it when he keeps things really short and snappy. I like it when he is quick with his feet rather than a bit elaborate and over-thought.
