TRANSFER | Moss loan extended until January

Yeovil Town can confirm that Dan Moss’ loan deal from Millwall has been extended until January 24th 2022.

The young defender has been a mainstay in the Yeovil Town defence so far this season, involved in every game and starting on 13 occasions.

After making the right-back position his own, the Millwall loanee has been a key component in a Yeovil Town side which boasts the third best defence in the National League.

In agreement with Millwall, Moss is able to play for the club in FA Cup action, and will be available for Saturday’s trip to Yate.

Great to have you back, Dan!

TRANSFER | Dion Pereira signs on a short-term loan deal

Yeovil Town are delighted to confirm that Dion Pereira has joined on a short-term loan deal from Luton Town.

The 22-year-old winger signs to boost Darren Sarll’s attacking options. Pereira is a familiar face to Sarll, having briefly worked together whilst at Watford.

A tricky wide-man by trade, Pereira has had a unique journey in the game so far. The Watford native spent his formative years in football within the Hornets’ academy, progressing to the first team and playing twice in the Premier League.

Dion Pereira of Watford warms up during the Premier League match between Chelsea and Watford played at Stamford Bridge, London on 15th May 2017 Football – Premier League 2016/17 Chelsea v Watford Stamford Bridge, Fulham Rd, London, United Kingdom – 15 May 2017

In 2019, at just 19-years-old, Pereira ventured stateside to sign for Atlanta United in Major League Soccer. He made 21 appearances in all competitions as the Five Stripes won the US Open Cup.

Pereira spent just one year in Atlanta before returning to home pastures to join Nathan Jones’ Luton Town. During 2020/21 the winger became a key figure in the Hatters U23’s side and made one Championship appearance against Queens Park Rangers.

Now stepping into the mens game for an extended period, Pereira will be looking to follow the success of Josh Neufville, who enjoyed a terrific loan spell from Luton last season.

Welcome to Somerset, Dion.

TRANSFER | Exeter City duo sign on loan

Yeovil Town are delighted to confirm the loan signing of Ben Seymour and Jordan Dyer on one-month loan deals.

Seymour is an exciting forward who became the first player to be handed the Exeter City no.9 shirt since it was reintroduced in the memory of former Yeovil & Exeter player Adam Stansfield.

The 22-year-old has previously enjoyed a number of prolific loan spells within the non-league circuit, most notably with Bideford and Dorchester where he scored a combined 35 goals in 59 games.

21-year-old Dyer has also spent time out on loan within the non-league pyramid, firstly a short spell with Bideford, which was then followed by a two-season stay at Tiverton Town where he made 41 appearances before the curtailment of the 2019/20 season. In December 2019, he made his Exeter first team debut in a 0-0 draw with Oxford United.

Able to operate in a number of positions across the backline and midfield, Dyer will offer versatility to the Yeovil Town defensive ranks.

The two loanees from St.James Park were involved in Tuesday’s friendly draw with Newport County and will be hoping to be involved in competitive action for Town next week against Maidenhead United. Tickets for that fixture can be purchased from HERE.

Welcome to Yeovil Town, lads!

TRANSFER | Versatile Rose signs for Yeovil Town

Yeovil Town are delighted to confirm the signing of midfielder Mitch Rose.

The versatile Rose has mainly enjoyed spells as a holding midfielder throughout his career, but has also spent time playing at the centre of defence and full-back.

Coming through the ranks at Rotherham United in 2010, this was where Rose first met current Town boss Darren Sarll, who helped our latest addition progress as a scholar.

Our new no.16 has experience in the Football League, having later plied his trade for Mansfield Town, Newport County, Grimsby Town.

A penalty specialist, Rose scored from the spot in April 2018 to confirm Grimsby’s EFL survival against Chesterfield.

More recently, Rose spent two seasons with Notts County, where he helped the Magpies to the National League Promotion Final in the 19/20 season.

The 27-year-old now ventures to Somerset in the hope of going one better with Yeovil Town.

Speaking to ytfc.net after signing, Rose said; “It seems so surreal to me! When I spoke to Darren Sarll earlier in the week, it was seeming like it wasn’t going to happen yet.

“I got the text on Wednesday that he wanted me in to train tomorrow, I don’t think I’ve had time to process it all.

“I can’t wait to get that feeling back again, the nervous energy of preparing for a game, being amongst the lads as a group and hopefully getting three points.”

Welcome to Huish Park, Mitch!

CLUB NEWS | Sonny Blu Lo-Everton’s history with Darren Sarll

Despite being just 18-years-old, Sonny Blu Lo-Everton and Yeovil Town manager Darren Sarll have a long-standing relationship in football.

Prior to taking the reins at Huish Park, the boss was academy manager at Premier League side, Watford.

Whilst heading up the academy at Vicarage Road, Sarll first encountered our latest addition on his first day at the club, whilst the then 15-year-old was on work experience.
Speaking to Adam Leventhal from the Athletic in 2019, Sarll reminisced on his first encounter with Lo-Everton; “This kid walked in with a four-barrelled name.

“I remember after the third run of six I said to him ‘Come out, you’ve done enough, that’s enough for you.

 “He refused. He said ‘No, no, no I want to do what they’re doing.’”

Despite not even kicking a ball in front of Sarll, the boss took a liking to Lo-Everton almost instantly.

“Straight away he endeared himself to me, because at 15 he gave a grown-up answer — a big boy answer.”

“He had his trainers on, and I hadn’t seen him kick a ball, but you get a scent of anticipation when you get a young player like that who reacts so maturely, so I was looking forward to seeing this lad with the ball at his feet.”

As the youngster developed, Lo-Everton became a key component in the Watford youth sides, most notably for the Watford U18’s who enjoyed a heroic run in the FA Youth Cup, with both Sarll and Lo-Everton heavily involved.

Still only 18, the Watford youngster now links up with Sarll again to continue his development into the men’s game.

“We’ve got a good bunch of lads here, and with the Gaffers’ sessions, it’s been enjoyable!”, said Blu-Everton after his loan deal was confirmed.

“I think he (Sarll), brings the best out of me, he’s great to work under.

“Where’d I’d played against Yeovil for Wealdstone, the club have said they like me, and need a player like that.

“From there he (Sarll) was straight on the phone to my agent!”

Lo-Everton will be looking to make his first competitive start for Town in two weeks’ time as King’s Lynn Town visit Huish Park, for tickets click HERE.

TRANSFER | Sonny Blu Lo-Everton joins on loan

Yeovil Town are delighted to announce the signing of Sonny Blu Lo-Everton on loan from Watford until 15th January.

Already possessing National League experience with Wealdstone, the exciting attacker can play across the all the forward positions.

Last season with the Stones, Sonny made four appearances in the National League, scoring twice.

A familiar face to Darren Sarll, the youngster spent time with the boss as a 16-year-old, whilst he was academy manager at Watford F.C.

Just over two years on, Sarll & Sonny link-up once again, but this time in Somerset.

Speaking to ytfc.net after signing, our latest addition said; “It feels great. We’ve got a good bunch of lads here, and with the Gaffers’ sessions, it’s been enjoyable!

“I think he (Sarll), brings the best out of me, he’s great to work under.

“I can’t wait to play under the fans at Huish Park, it will be unreal!”

During his time at the Vale, the 18-year-old caught the eye playing against Town, coming on as a substitute and providing a creative spark, a performance which became the catalyst for his loan move to Huish Park; “Where’d I’d played against Yeovil for Wealdstone, the club have said they like me, and need a player like that.

“From there he was straight on the phone to my agent!”

Welcome to Somerset, Sonny!
