Yeovil Town have taken former Manchester United midfielder Sam Hewson on trial. The 21 year old was released by United over the summer. He is a former England Under 19 international player, who has seen loan spells with League Two sides Hereford United and Bury.
Hewson started his youth career with AFC Bolton at the age of eight before being taken on by Manchester United a year later. He signed a trainee contract with them in the summer of 2005, playing 28 matches for their Under 18s during the following season, and making his debut for the Reserves. The following year, he became captain of their Under 18s, making a further 26 appearances.
In the summer of 2007, he signed his first professional contract with the club, playing 22 times during the 2007-08 season for their Reserve side. In December of that season, he was an unused substitute in a Champions League qualifying match against Roma.
His first spot of actual first team football came in January 2009 when he went on a three month loan with Hereford United, clocking up 10 appearances and scoring three goals. During the following season, in February 2010, he went out on loan with Bury, making seven appearances, although with six of them coming from the bench.
Sam came on as a second half substitute during this afternoon's 0-1 home defeat against Swansea City to make his debut in a green and white shirt.
