Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton has paid tribute to two of his players, who have returned to their parent clubs today. Midfielder Shaun MacDonald and goalkeeper John Sullivan. The duo have been on loan at Huish Park for the first half of the 2010-11 season, but have now played their final games, returning to Swansea City and Millwall respectively.
Skiverton told BBC Somerset that he felt both players had been a credit to themselves and their clubs and that he would have no hesitation in recommending them to any other clubs who might want to take them on in the future:
"I'll wish Shaun (MacDonald) all the best along with John Sullivan. I think the pair of them have been exemplary in the way that they have acted and the way that they've conducted themselves and they've been a real credit to their host clubs. When you've got people like that who are fighting the cause, it makes my job a little bit easier. Whoever rings up about them, or with the feedback I've given their clubs, will know that they're very good players and very good people as well and that's the most important thing to me."
In Sullivan's place comes Bristol City keeper Stephen Henderson. The Irishman's loan contract runs until the end of the 2010-11 season, but with a 24 hour recall clause attached to it. Skiverton hinted that if Henderson did get recalled unexpectedly at any stage that he wouldn't rule out heading back for Sullivan:
"John Sullivan has been excellent, and with Hendo's deal I've been lucky enough to have two good keepers this year. If one falls down, then the other one comes back, or we might have to bring another one in. As long as it's the right people, which they are, and the right characters then I know we'll do okay at this level."
