Yeovil Town defender Rhys Baggridge has joined Dorset side Poole Town on a short term loan deal. The 19 year old has agreed a deal with the Dolphins for a one month period, and played in their Southern League Division One South and West match against Tiverton Town yesterday, clocking up 90 minutes in a 0-0 draw at Tatnam Farm. Dolphins manager Tom Killick said prior to yesterday's match:
"Rhys is a first-year pro at Yeovil and comes highly recommended. They feel he will do well for us."
Baggridge is the second Yeovil Town player to go out on loan to the South Dorset side, with right-sided Youth Team graduate Lewis Clarke having played there earlier in the season. Lewis had his loan spell with the Dolphins cut short by an ankle injury, although had already missed three games due to a red card sustained in Poole's FA Cup defeat against Salisbury City in October.
Rhys has already had one loan spell this season, playing for Gillingham Town in the Western League First Division. He spent a month playing under former Glover Adrian Foster before getting recalled by the Glovers during mid-October due to the club's injury crisis.
However, despite that recall, he has yet to get further than sitting on the first team bench this season, with his main bit of competitive football coming during the Reserves excursions in the Somerset Premier Cup - last playing in the Second Round win against Shepton Mallet last month.
