24 Lawson D’Ath

eng England
Current Team
Yeovil Town

Lawson, who originally joined the club in 2019, made 44 apps across two seasons, before an injury suffered on the final day of the season forced him to need surgery.

The midfielder remained in Somerset to recover from the injury and during that time became a regular co-commentator on BBC Somerset, building a reputation for his passion on the microphone.

Throughout his injury recovery, manager Darren Sarll made no secret of his desire to secure Lawson’s signature. Commenting after his signature was confirmed, Sarll said, “Of all the players we could have signed this year Lawson was the one I wanted the most.

“He has been with the club since my appointment, and he has seen the very best and worst during his time. He has remained loyal when he could have drifted away, and nothing pleases me more than to have back involved with the squad.

“There is no one I trust more. A wonderful player but an even better person. He will lift us from now until the end of the season.”
