Teenager Sonny Blu Lo-Everton has joined Yeovil Town on loan until January from Premier League Watford.
The 18-year-old forward turned out for the Glovers as a trialist in the pre-season friendly match at Weston-super-Mare where he was involved in equaliser scored by Tom Knowles.
He is described as “an exciting attacker can play across the forward positions” and is known to Glovers’ boss Darren Sarll from the manager’s time in the academy at Watford.
Speaking to the club’s website about his arrival at Huish Park, the Scotland under-19s international said: “It feels great. We’ve got a good bunch of lads here, and with the Gaffer’s sessions, it’s been enjoyable.
“I think he (Sarll), brings the best out of me, he’s great to work under.”
The youngster has arrived on a deal until January 15 next year and seems likely to be part of the squad for the opening National League match at home to King’s Lynn Town on August 28.
His appearance in the friendly at Weston follows a number of appearances for Watford in pre-season campaign this season having turned out for the Hornets’ under-23s on a number of occasions.
He is under contract at Vicarage Road until next summer.
Lo-Everton had a spell on loan in the National League at Wealdstone last season, making 10 appearances including as an 18th-minute substitute against Yeovil when goals from Knowles and Joe Quigley sealed a 2-0 win in May.
He scored twice in a one-month spell with the struggling Stones who nose-dived in the second half of last season following the departure of boss Dean Brennan.
