Former Yeovil Town right-winger Lewis Clarke has found himself a new club, after being released at the end of the 2011-12 season. He has returned to his home town Weymouth, who he had a loan spell with last season which was cut short, following an injury, but the Terras have seen enough to want him to return.
Lewis is due to sign tonight at a club sponsors evening at the Bob Lucas Stadium. Speaking to the Dorset Echo, Terras boss Brendon King believes that Clarke can use his time at Southern League level to work his way back up, with the 18 year old more likely to get game time at Weymouth's level:
"Lewis has agreed terms and will sign tonight. He did very well for us during his short loan spell here last season and he is now at a stage in his career where he needs regular Football. Unfortunately, things didnít work out as he had hoped in the full-time game with Yeovil but he now has an opportunity with us to put himself in the shop window.
"It will take a little bit of time for him to make the transition to part-time football but he knows this a chance for him to really show what he can do. The fact he is also another local lad is fantastic and once again it shows players in the area that they will be given the opportunity here if they do the right things."
Meanwhile former loan goalkeeper Marek Stech is a free agent, after he was released by West Ham United. The Czech Republic Under-21 international has left the club "by mutual consent" according to Hammers co-Chairman David Gold.
Stech's future appeared to be in doubt during last season, when the 22 year old claimed that the Hammers were not selecting him for first team duty, due to an appearance clause in his contract that would result in them having to pay money to his previous club Sparta Prague if he made over a certain number of appearances.
His release is bound to attract the interest of a number of Championship and League One clubs, having had loan spells with Wycombe Wanderers, AFC Bournemouth, Yeovil Town and Leyton Orient during his time at Upton Park. There's little doubt that he would be welcomed back to Huish Park with open arms, but the Glovers are unlikely to find themselves the only club with interest in the keeper.
