Yeovil Town can confirm that James Tilley’s loan has been terminated by Brighton and Hove Albion.

The midfielder now heads northbound to Blundell Park, joining up with Ian Holloway’s Grimsby Town in League Two.

The technically gifted midfielder was originally supposed to stay until the end of the season, but Tilley will now move on ahead of schedule after making 21 appearances for the green and white.

Despite not scoring, Tilley made a number of goal contributions for the Glovers, linking up well with Rhys Murphy providing vital assists, most notably away to Chorley.

We thank Tilley for his contribution this season and wish him well for the future.
