Left-sided defender Danny Fitzsimons has left Yeovil Town after failing to make an impact at Huish Park. The 19 year old had been on a contract during the second half of the 2010-11 season and was given an invitation to return to the club to earn another deal during pre-season.
The former Queens Park Rangers and Millwall trainee has now signed for Conference North side Histon, who he had a short six game loan spell with during 2010, prior to his arrival in Somerset.
He failed to make a first team appearance at Huish Park, and during the current pre-season his time on the pitch was fairly limited - starting in the friendly at Poole Town and coming on as a substitute during the match against Bristol City, Truro City and Inverness Caledonian Thistle. He was last seen on the bench for the match against Cardiff City but did not get onto the pitch.
Histon manager David Livermore told the Cambridge News that there was a deal on the table for Fitzsimons, but that he decided to return to Cambridgeshire instead, suggesting that it was regular first team football he was after:
"Danny is exactly the type of young, hungry player I want here at the club. He has had a good schooling with the likes of Millwall, QPR, Yeovil and the Irish under-18 side and has the desire to get back into the League, which is something I believe he can achieve. Itís a credit to him that he has turned down the opportunity at Yeovil to join us in order to play regular first-team football. I think itís a terrific deal for the club and for Danny."
Fitzsimons is due to turn out for Histon in their pre-season friendly against King's Lynn tonight.
