Yeovil Town can confirm the departure of Joe Quigley to Chesterfield for an undisclosed fee. 

Forward Quigley signed on a free transfer from Dagenham & Redbridge in October 2020 and went on to make 61 appearances for the Glovers, scoring 19 times. 

Chairman Scott Priestnall commented on the departure; “The decision to accept the offer for Joe is one that helps improve our cash resources at a time when our average attendances are much lower than expected, and as a result, we have a shortfall in our budget for this season.

“The ongoing speculation surrounding a takeover is certainly not helping the club recover from the lost revenues from playing last season behind closed doors, and with the exception of the Bournemouth game, attendances have not met pre-pandemic numbers.

“On the point of a potential takeover, I can tell you that no party up to this point has been in a position or is yet in a position to complete a takeover. Although discussions have continued, the club are looking at alternative sources of funding and investment. I shall update you further in due course.”

We would like to thank Joe for his efforts during his time at the club and wish him all the best for the future.
