Scrimshaw in action for Bournemouth U21s ?AFCB U21 Twitter

Striker Jake Scrimshaw has become Yeovil Town’s second signing of the day after joining from Premier League new boys AFC Bournemouth.

The 21-year-old has signed a two-year contract at Huish Park having spent the previous seven years at Dean Court where he was deemed surplus to requirements in the summer despite having a contract option triggered.

He spent last season on loan at Scunthorpe United scoring four times in 19 appearances and has a prolific record in the Cherries’ youth set up and at Poole Town in the 2018-19 season where he scored 17 times for the Dolphins.

Manager Chris Hargreaves said: “I’m really pleased to welcome Jake to the club. He’s a versatile forward who can offer us flexibility in the way we play and utilise him.

“Jake is the sort of player who will work his socks off for the team. He’s desperate to be a success here at Yeovil Town.”

It is expected Scrimshaw will go in to the squad for Saturday’s visit by Dagenham & Redbridge and be available for the trip to Wealdstone on Bank Holiday Monday, adding to attacking options including Malachi Linton, Alex Fisher and Gime Toure.

In the 2020-21 campaign he had loan spells at Newport County and Walsall where he was used mostly as a substitute, but still netted three times for Newport and twice at Walsall in League Two.

The previous campaign he had a three-month spell at Eastleigh in the National League making nine appearances.

Welcome to Somerset, Jake!
