Yeovil Town have firmed up their first choice goalkeeper for Saturday's trip to Hereford United. They will not be going outside their current squad set-up after failing to bring in a loan goalkeeper for the First Round tie at Edgar Street.
Goalkeeping coach Gareth Stewart will make his debut for the Glovers, having occupied the bench in a number of matches this season. Stewart is only 31 years old, but has not played at professional level since March 1st 2008 - his final game for AFC Bournemouth, who he spent nine years with. He has had further experience in non-league football with Dorchester Town and Welling United since that time, but bar a spot of benchwarming, he has not played in a competitive match since he joined the Glovers as a coach in January 2011.
Yeovil Town Under-18s keeper Matt Cafer was seen training with the first team squad today, suggesting that he could be on the bench on Saturday. He is a first year scholar, who signed up to the club's two year Scholarship programme this summer.
Saturday's FA Cup rules allow the Glovers to select seven substitutes for the competition, rather than the five that are normally utilised.
