Ciderspace News Page : Johnson Confirms Routledge Trial
19 January 2012 : Johnson Confirms Routledge Trial
Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson has confirmed news from earlier this week, that the Glovers have taken Stockport County midfielder Jonathon Routledge on trial. As reported on Sunday, the player has headed down to Huish Park to try his luck in League One, after falling out of favour at Edgeley Park, following a management change.

Johnson has confirmed in this week's Western Gazette that the 22 year old is one of the six trialists that played in the 1-0 win over Bristol City Reserves in midweek, and that he's done enough to warrant a second look, having disappeared down the Hatters pecking order when Dietmar Hamann was replaced as manager by Jim Gannon:

"Jon was one of our trialists and one of the boys that did well. The reason he went to Stockport was because of Dietmar Hamann, who asked him to go and they were players together at Liverpool. When Dietmar got the sack, the boy was left a little bit high and dry. We looked at him, we have not made our minds up yet but he is certainly one of the ones that was a positive."

Again, Johnson has hinted to the paper that only two out of the six players who trialled in Bristol on Tuesday are to be considered further. One of those six, according to Welsh media reports, was Cardiff City midfielder Solomon Taiwo, although we don't know yet whether he made the cut.
