HARRISON OUT TO CEMENT SPOT IN SQUAD

9 February 2017

Shayon Harrison is targeting goals and team success during his spell at Huish Park.

The Tottenham loanee made his first Glovers start in midweek away to Luton Town in the Checkatrade Trophy, completing the 90 minutes.

Having arrived towards the end of January, the 19-year-old made his debut at Blackpool and is targeting a first league start on Saturday when Town host Leyton Orient (3pm). 

Speaking to YTFC’s official YouTube channel, the attacker stated he’s enjoying his time in Somerset. 

“I’m really, really enjoying it. I feel settled in now, I really get on well with the lads and am enjoying it at the moment. 

“I want to keep cementing my place in the team, working hard in training and showing the gaffer I deserve to play.” 

Harrison is the latest in a line of Spurs players who have enjoyed successful loan spells at Yeovil. 

England internationals Ryan Mason, Steven Caulker and Andros Townsend all spent time at Huish Park from White Hart Lane, with Harrison keen to continue his own development.

He said: “(Getting) experience is one of my main objectives. It’s completely different to Under-23 football, it’s men’s football now and a better experience for me and something I need.

“A lot of Spurs players have come through this system and gone on to play at a top, top level so hopefully I can continue to do that as well.

“I want to follow in their footsteps and get to the top level if I can.”

The Glovers host Leyton Orient in Sky Bet League Two this weekend and the Spurs loanee is keen to open his Town account. 

“(I set) individual targets,” he revealed. “Coming out on loan the main objective is to score goals. 

“That’s what I’m here to do and once I get my first, I can push on from there.

"If I can get a few goals and if we keep winning a few more games, we'll definitely be in contention for the play-offs."

Tickets are still available to purchase for Saturday’s fixture via the Huish Park ticket office either in person or by calling 01935 847888.Alternatively, tickets can be bought online
