Western League Premier Division side Sherborne Town have thanked the Glovers for allowing Youth Team duo Rob Clowes and Lewis Clarke a chance to play for the Dorset side. The Second Year Scholars will be working with Town manager and former Glovers legend Mickey Spencer as part of Sherborne's first team, giving both a taste of first team football.
As mentioned yesterday, both players should be eligible for selection for Sherborne's home match tomorrow night against Welton Rovers. Sherborne boss Spencer has told their official site that last season's experience of taking on Glovers players was one that he was happy to repeat:
"It is great to have such good contacts with the staff at Huish Park. The arrangement worked well last year and the proof of that is that Rhys Baggridge is now a regular in Yeovil's first team squad. From Sherborne's point of view it is great to help our local league team and from a personal perspective it is great to work with up-and-coming talented players."
The arrangement is a similar one to last season's deal that saw Rhys Baggridge and Rob Clowes head across to Dorset in that they are able to continue to play for Yeovil Town's Youth and Reserve side, when required, in a deal that has been badged as work experience.
During last season, Rhys played for Yeovil Town Reserves, Yeovil Town Under-18s and Sherborne Town all in the space of one week, and so it would not be too surprising if the latest pair saw more of the same, with the Glovers due to face Hengrove Athletic in the County Cup at the end of next month. Good luck to them both.
Sherborne's home match against Welton Rovers tomorrow night kicks off at 7.45p.m. at Raleigh Grove for those who fancy popping along. Even if Lewis and Rob don't make it into their starting line-up straight away, expect to be playing 'Spot The Ex-Glover' throughout the evening, with plenty of former Reserve and Youth players out on display.
