Yeovil Town are delighted to announce the signing of highly-rated youngster Sam Perry on loan from Walsall until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old already has 41 senior appearances for his hometown club after joining from Aston Villa’s academy in 2019.

After breaking into the first team during the Bank’s Stadium 20/21 season, the midfielder made his presence known early on, scoring against Bolton Wanderers in what was just his fifth EFL appearance.

Looking to cut his teeth in the National League, Perry now ventures to Somerset looking to make an impact in non-league’s top flight.

Commenting first team manager Chris Hargreaves said; “Sam is a determined young player who arrives hungry to succeed at Yeovil Town.

“He made 25 appearances at a League Two club last year and will add to the quality already in the building. He will go straight into the squad for tonight’s game against Taunton Town.”

Welcome to Huish Park, Sam!
