And finally, the madness of the January Transfer Window ends, with no further comings or goings to speak of. For those who wisely headed out for the evening and turned off your computers and mobile phones, the big news is as follows:
Andrew Tutte: Arrives on loan from Manchester City: full details.
Jean-Paul Kalala: Leaves the club for Bristol Rovers: full details.
The rumourmill did create a scare by reports on the BBC Sport website that striker Dean Bowditch was off to Huddersfield Town, a whisper that appeared to come from the Huddersfield end of things. Exactly how far that went down the line, we'll never know, but the message from Bowditch himself on Twitter around 35 minutes before the window shut thankfully put that one to bed.
The end result is that the final day of the January transfer window gave us one midfielder coming in, and one midfielder going out. No damage done, and with Paul Wotton likely to be a first team mainstay, chances for Kalala in future games would have been much more limited as a fellow holding midfielder.
There were of course a small number of Yeovil Town related transfers going on during the day. The most notable wasn't a transfer as such - or at least not yet - but the decision of Gavin Williams to leave Bristol City by mutual consent. Because he's now a free agent, he is not governed by the transfer window, but will of course be lining himself up with a new club fairly soon. The belief is that the club involved is Bristol Rovers, although that Yeovil Town have expressed an interest.
Former midfielder Keiran Murtagh has left Wycombe Wanderers on loan for Woking, whilst striker Luke Rodgers has signed for New York Red Bulls, subject to international clearance where he will play alongside Thierry Henry! Meanwhile former loan striker Scott Spencer has signed for Lincoln City having recently left Southend United. Another two strikers Yemi Odubade and Charlie Griffin, have left Stevenage on loan, with both joining Newport County. Finally, winger Cameron Stewart has made his move from Manchester United to Hull City a permanent one for an undisclosed fee.
One non-Yeovil Town related transfer to note - Dulwich Hamlet striker Paul McCallum, who scored a hat-trick against the Glovers in the FA Youth Cup, has signed for West Ham United for an undisclosed fee. He'll be one to keep an eye on in future years.
