Yeovil Town first year professional Lewis Clarke has picked up a knee injury during his loan spell with Weymouth. The 19 year old was was only able to play the opening 45 minutes of Saturday's match for the Southern League Premier Division side, having picked up a problem prior to the match against Hemel Hempstead Town.
The problem flared up again during Saturday's match, and boss Brendon King had to take him off, leaving him a doubt for their home game against Cirencester Town tonight. King told the Dorset Echo he'd been given clearance by the Glovers medical team for the former Youth Team player to take to the field:
“Lewis had a bit of treatment on his knee at Yeovil last week but their physio felt he was okay to play. Unfortunately though, he picked up a knock on it and had to come off at half-time. Hopefully, it will heal quickly but we will just have to wait and see."
So far Lewis has made six starts and one substitute appearance as a regular in his home town side, since arriving at the Wessex Stadium at the tail end of January.
Meanwhile Youth Team second year scholar Lloyd Matthews has returned to Frome Town to restart a curtailed loan spell with the Somerset club. Lloyd had returned to Huish Park for treatment on a knee injury, but was given the all clear to head back to the Southern League Premier Division side last week, having come on as a substitute for the Under-18s just over a week ago. Lloyd played the final 14 minutes of their home game against Barwell, with the Robins grabbing the one and only goal of the match three minutes from time.
