Position: Midfielder

Toby Stephens

An academy graduate, Toby signed his first professional deal at the start of the 20/21 season and made his debut on the bench against Wrexham. The teenager is now a regular amongst the travelling squad.

Lewis Simper

Loanee Lewis Simper will stay with Town until the conclusion of the 21/22 campaign.

Signing from Cambridge United, the highly rated midfielder looks to gain first team experience in a full-time environment with Town.

Most recently, the 20-year-old enjoyed a spell at National League South side Concord Rangers, where he was involved in the FA Trophy final at Wembley Stadium where the Essex outfit were narrowly defeated by Harrogate Town. During his time with the Beach Boys, Simper made 7 appearances, scoring twice.

Morgan Williams

A familiar face to most Glovers fans, Williams enjoyed two short term loan spells with the club from Coventry City.

Making an instant impact in his first spell, Williams kept a clean sheet on his debut against FC Halifax Town after just one training session with the club.

Prior to joining the Glovers on loan first time round, Williams had already made his first team bow for Coventry, lining up in the Checkatrade Trophy against Arsenal and later started in League One against Fleetwood Town.

Alex Bradley

The versatile full-back made his debut for Town in the dramatic FA Cup victory over Bromley in early November, but an injury issue meant he missed some minutes early on in his loan spell. 

Bradley’s return to the side has coincided with Town’s up-turn in form, starring in victories over Torquay United and fierce rivals Weymouth. 

Despite being born in Worcester, Bradley has youth international experience with Finland, playing in the 2018 UEFA U19 Championships for his Mother’s birth nation.

The right sided defender already has National League promotion pedigree under his belt, having made 23 appearances for Harrogate Town last season as the Sulphurites won the delayed National League play-offs.

Tom Knowles

Winger Tom Knowles signed for Yeovil Town in December 2020, signing on undisclosed terms from Cambridge.

Knowles began his career at Cambridge, and after graduating from his hometown club’s academy in 2017, has played a handful of games for the League Two side, scoring a late free-kick against Morecambe in April 2019 and netting this season against Fulham U23’s.

Already enjoying seven loan spells inside the National League pyramid, Knowles knows the non-league game well, including a 14 goal season across two loan spells at Cambridge City & St. Ives Town. 

Last season, Knowles received much praise during a successful spell on loan at Chelmsford City in the National League South, where he scored five times in 24 appearances, including the winner against eventual league champions Wealdstone F.C.

Matthew Worthington

Arriving for a second spell with the club in January 2019, Matt Worthington signed a two-and-a-half year deal from AFC Bournemouth.

A loanee during the 2017/18 campaign at Huish Park, the Cherries academy graduate then spent the first half of the current campaign at Forest Green Rovers before returning to the Vitality Stadium.

Snapped up by the Glovers, the box-to-box midfielder, who can also operate at right-back, signed a long-term deal to return to Somerset.

 

Dale Gorman

Dale Gorman joined Yeovil Town in July 2021.

The midfielder reunited with Darren Sarll who brought him over to England in his teens whilst at Stevenage.

Now 25, Gorman has a National League winners medal with Leyton Orient, alongside EFL spells with the aforementioned Stevenage & a loan spell with Newport County.

Most recently, the midfielder spent time in the Northern Ireland Premier Division with Glentoran, where he inspired the Glens to a third placed finish, reaching the Europa League qualifying rounds in the process.

Josh Staunton

Josh Staunton became Darren Sarll’s first summer signing of the 2020/21 transfer window.

The versatile man has been known to play in both in the defence and in holding midfield roles.

After a successful season for Halifax where he played every minute in their play-off push, Staunton signed for Yeovil with the aim of going one better this time round.

Mitch Rose

The versatile Rose has mainly enjoyed spells as a holding midfielder throughout his career, but has also spent time playing at the centre of defence and full-back.

Coming through the ranks at Rotherham United in 2010, this was where Rose first met current Town boss Darren Sarll, who helped our latest addition progress as a scholar.

Our new no.16 has experience in the Football League, having later plied his trade for Mansfield Town, Newport County, Grimsby Town.

A penalty specialist, Rose scored from the spot in April 2018 to confirm Grimsby’s EFL survival against Chesterfield.

More recently, Rose spent two seasons with Notts County, where he helped the Magpies to the National League Promotion Final in the 19/20 season.

Albi Skendi

Snapped up from Stratford Town, utlitity man Albi Skendi signed his first professional contract with the Glovers in 2019.

Able to operate across midfield, in defence and up front, the versatile man joined the Glovers after helping Stratford to their highest ever league finish in the club’s history, starring in 2018/19.

With previous spells at Oxford City and Banbury United as well as stints in America with Los Angeles Wolfs and Marymount California University, the 6’4″ utility man now heads to Somerset on a permanent basis.
