Yeovil Town striker Ollie Hulbert has joined Gloucester City on a one-month loan deal, according to the National League North side.

Ollie Hulbert, centre, has appeared in pre-match warm-ups in recent weeks but is yet to make a matchday squad in the National League.

The 19-year-old is yet to appear in a matchday squad since being named as Chris Hargreaves’ first signing at Huish Park in the summer following his released by Bristol Rovers at the end of last season.

He is a familiar face in Gloucester where he made 32 appearances last season whilst on loan from Rovers, scoring nine goals.

In a statement posted at 2pm on Monday, Tigers’ manager Lee Mansell said: “Ollie we all know about from last season has undoubted qualities, he’s had a tough period of not getting much game time at Yeovil.

So he’s here to get himself and us back firing again, thanks to Chris Hargreaves at Yeovil for allowing us to have him.

The signing of Hulbert and Swindon Town defender Harrison Minturn has been announced by Gloucester.

Later in the day, the move was confirmed by a statement from Yeovil Town which added: “The forward has struggled with injuries since has arrival which have kept him out the Glovers’ team.

Looking to build up his fitness, Hulbert will join the National League North outfit, who he played for last season for a short period.”

Speaking a couple of weeks ago, Hargreaves revealed that Hulbert’s absence was down to an injury after he was spotted working with Scott Wickens, the club’s strength and conditioning coach, before the 2-1 defeat to Barnet at Huish Park

Hargreaves said: “We have to work out why it is happening and it may be a decision we have to make on that.

He trains well but has a slight problem in games. He is chomping at the bit, but in certain circumstances his body is letting him down.
