Yeovil Town are delighted to announce the return of Lawson D’Ath who has signed a contract following a period of rehabilitation at the club.

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. 

On the pitch, Lawson has returned to training in recent weeks and is now ready to make his mark on the pitch once again.

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.”

Speaking to ytfc.net, Lawson said, “I’m absolutely buzzing to be back involved and available again for this club, but also for the gaffer who I have huge respect for. I can’t wait to play for him again, a manager that will go right to the top! 

“It’s been a long tough nine months and I’m so lucky to have great people in my life who’ve allowed me to keep the dream going. So, a massive thank you to my family, gaffer, Terry, Craig, Scott, Adam, Martin, Simon, and my teammates past and present. 

“The hard work starts now though. We will give it everything until the end of the season. With your support, who knows what can happen?”

It’s great to have you back, Laws!
