Yeovil Town are delighted to announce that Matthew Worthington has extended his Yeovil Town contract for the 2022/23 season.

Worthington’s new contract furthers his time as the club’s longest serving player, having signed for the Glovers in January 2019.

Last season, he became the latest player to make 100 appearances for Yeovil Town, with his total figure now standing at 139. The 24-year-old established himself as a regular fixture in the Glovers’ starting 11 during the last campaign, making 41 appearances in all competitions, the most he has made in a single season.

He did no harm to his reputation scoring the opener against Weymouth in an FA Cup replay at the Bob Lucas Stadium in October.

Commenting after his stay was confirmed, the midfielder said; “I’m delighted to sign a new deal to stay at this club once again.

“We’ve got a few weeks to go, but I’m already looking forward to getting back out there with the lads and doing all we can for the fans.”

Manager Chris Hargreaves also added, “It’s brilliant that Matt has agreed to sign for us. He is a player I feel the fans identify to and relate with.

“He had offers elsewhere, but it was Matt’s passion for the football club that drove this move, I’m really delighted he’ll be with us next season.”

It’s great you’re still with us, Matt!
