Yeovil Town have confirmed the addition of Bristol City goalkeeper Will Buse ahead of the season opener against Scunthorpe.

Joining on a season-long loan, the keeper will challenge Grant Smith for the number one spot following the temporary departure of Max Evans on loan to Larkhall Athletic.

Speaking about the departure of Evans and Buse, manager Chris Hargreaves said: “Both these loans are crucial for the development of each individual. 

“Firstly with Max, he is at a stage where he needs to be out there playing games on a consistent basis. He can only learn so much on the training pitch, so this loan is the next stage in his development. 

“We all think very highly of Max and know he will return an even better player.

“Obviously with Max departing, there is a need for another goalkeeper in the squad. Will arrives as the perfect candidate to bolster the goalkeeping department.

“As a local lad, his connection to the club was a huge draw, but more importantly, he is a very good goalkeeper as those who watched our friendly against Taunton saw.

“He is strong competition for Grant Smith and will go into the squad for Saturday’s game.”

Buse, played against the Glovers in pre-season for Taunton Town, where he was expecting to spend the season, but after being recalled is now a Yeovil player.

Will, is a direct relative of Matt who has spent the summer on trial at Huish Park, but at time of writing hasn’t been given a deal.

Welcome to Yeovil, Will.
