Striker Yemi Odubade has returned to former club Eastbourne Borough on a permanent basis, according to Yeovil's official site. The club have said that Yemi wished to leave the Glovers for 'personal reasons' with Gary Johnson adding that the player wished to return to part-time football.
Johnson said: "Yemi has left us for personal reasons but I am naturally disappointed because he was improving along the right lines. However he was keen to return to part time football and we have respected his wishes. Naturally everyone at Yeovil wishes him all the best for the future."
Yemi joined Yeovil from Eastbourne Borough last summer. He has found first-team appeareances hard to come by, scoring twice in 8 matches, coming on as substitute on all occasions. He's been a regular starter for the reserves, scoring 4 goals for the Glovers second-string this season. He's blessed with extreme pace and from what we've seen of him in his few first team appearances and run-outs with the reserves is a natural finisher. He seemed very raw when he first arrived at Huish Park but has undoubtedly began looking more and more the part as the season has progressed and it must be said that at Ciderspace we are somewhat surprised and disappointed that he's wanted to leave as he certainly looked a very good prospect for the future. Nevertheless we wish him well. Good luck Yemi!
