Yeovil Town can confirm Academy goalkeeper Kingsley Latham has joined Southampton on a professional contract.

Latham, who has been part of the Academy’s Under-18 side, signs a deal at St Mary’s until May 2018.

Everyone at Yeovil Town Football Club wishes Kingsley all the best with his next career move and hope he enjoyed his brief spell with the Glovers.

The move is the latest chapter in a good relationship between the two Clubs, which has been developing for the last two years.
In a year of management, Darren Way has given seven players their EFL debut, handing a further four senior debuts to players within his Glovers squad.

After Latham’s departure, Yeovil manager Darren Way was hopeful for the academy system. 

He said: “Yeovil Town Football Club has a very good history of developing young talent, which has been evident over a number of years with the players in our first-team.

We are looking to improve all aspects of the Club and the Academy will be very important for our continued success.

“We have introduced Steve Rutter to Academy Head of Coaching and believe he is a much needed addition, bringing an experienced member of staff to the Academy coaching setup. 

‘We now look forward to developing our very own Liam Walsh, Connor Roberts or Ryan Hedges.”

Everyone at Yeovil Town Football Club wishes Kingsley all the best in the future.
