Former Yeovil Town defender Terrell Forbes has been reunited with his old house-mate. He has teamed up with former Glover Nathan Smith at Chesterfield, who will start the 2012-13 season in League Two, following their relegation at the end of last season. The pair shared a house during their time in South Somerset, and there will be little doubt in that being a strong factor in the 30 year old Londoner making the decision to head up the M1 to Derbyshire.
Forbesy has signed a one year contract after being released by League One side Leyton Orient, following two years at Brisbane Road. His new boss John Sheridan suggests that he tried to sign Terrell whilst he was still on Yeovil Town's books, and so has wanted to bring him into his squad for some time:
"Terrell can play in a number of defensive positions and I am delighted he is joining us as he is a player I wanted to sign a couple of seasons ago."
A few notes to fill in on the rumourmill, regarding players Yeovil have been linked with, assuming you believe the notorious rumour websites. Striker Jonathan Parkin has today signed for League Two side Fleetwood Town, whilst former Arsenal player Rhys Murphy has headed to Dutch Second Division side Telstar. We're not convinced how credible either rumour was, but regardless, both are dead ducks.
Perhaps more intriguing is that Bournemouth Echo sports journalist Neil Perrett believes Yeovil Town tried to sign striker Michael Symes, who was released by AFC Bournemouth at the end of last season. According to the paper, Symes turned down Yeovil's offer, and has alternative interest from Leyton Orient, Bury and Colchester United. Symes finished the 2011-12 season playing for Rochdale, and is a 6'3" striker which would suggest that manager Gary Johnson is still after a player who can lead the line for the Glovers.
