Winger Callum Harriott and midfielder Zanda Siziba have arrived at Yeovil Town as they seek to bolster their injury-hit squad in the run-in to the end of the National League season.

The pair were announced by owner-in-waiting Matt Uggla on social media after he said at the weekend that he was looking to bring in four signings before the deadline for registering players closes on Thursday.

Harriott left League Two side Gillingham at the end of February having only made four appearances this season, the last as a late substitute in the Gills’ FA Cup tie with Leicester City on January 7th, whilst Siziba has featured only twice for Ipswich, both in the Papa John’s Trophy. His last match was on November 22nd.

Siziba, 19, had been training at Huish Park in recent weeks and was announced by a tweet from Uggla showing him signing a contract alongside Paul Sackey, who is part of the SU Glovers group which is looking to take over at Huish Park*.

Harriott, 29, is a product of the Charlton Athletic academy and featured for the Addicks in the Championship before signing for Reading in 2016, before leaving at the end of the 2018-19 campaign and turning up at Colchester United, where he had a spell on loan in 2015-16.

He was a popular player with the Essex club, making nearly 100 appearances before being released in May 2021 and then joining Gillingham last November. He left at the end of February.

Uggla posted a link to a YouTube highlights package, see below, showing the tricky winger adding: “Daylight robbery. Big big player.” In a later post, he confirms the player is on a permanent deal.


* – until someone says the “bureaucratic thing” which Uggla was delaying the takeover of the club from former owner Scott Priestnall has been overcome, we’ll stick with ‘owners-in-waiting’. But, the commitment of SU Glovers to invest is (at the very least) a reassuring.
