Winger Charlie Wakefield has become Yeovil Town‘s latest signing after arriving on a one-year deal.

The 23-year-old was released by National League rivals Bromley at the end of the season having started the campaign at Wealdstone.

Speaking to the club’s official website, the former Chelsea youngster said: “I’m just excited to show the fans, what I’m capable of doing, what I can offer the team.

“I’m a unique player because I’ve been blessed with pace, and I want to be direct which will excite people. So, I’m looking forward to seeing the fans and them seeing me play.”

It is not the first time Wakefield has linked up with Glovers’ boss Darren Sarll. Sarll signed the then-19-year-old on a season long loan from Chelsea at the start of the 2017-18 season, but a recurring muscle injury meant he did not make an appearance for the Hertfordshire side.

The following year he had a spell in League One at Coventry City making eight substitute appearances before being released in October 2020 when he joined Wealdstone.

He turned out twice against the Glovers in the 2020-21 campaign, making his Wealdstone debut in the 2-2 draw at Huish Park in October and then coming on for the last five minutes of Bromley’s 2-1 win at Huish Park in March.

He was released by Bromley earlier this month following the expiry of his contract.
