Yeovil Town Under-18s get their South West Counties Youth League season underway with a home match against Bath City at Alvington on Saturday (10.30am kick-off).

Ironically, the fixture is the same one that the young Glovers closed last season with – albeit that match was played at Huish Park – with goals from Charlie Bateson and Mason Alden securing a 2-0 win in late April.

A number of players who would normally have been named in the Under-18s are now playing elsewhere with Bateson on loan at Shepton Mallet, and defender Jacob Shore and Ollie Haste and forward Benjani Junior out at Tiverton Town and Dorchester Town respectively.

The league’s website names 31 registered players in the Yeovil Town squad for the upcoming season with some familiar names including Alden, Joey Beckey, Max Dyer, Harrison Foster, Josh Haskett and Aidan Skiverton, who all featured to some degree last season.

The alphabetically-challenged Glovers will be looking to get off the bottom of the table with a positive result against their alphabetically superior opposition.
