Further to our earlier news, Yeovil Town have completed the signing of former Watford and Northampton Town winger/striker Lewis Young. He is the 22 year old younger brother of Manchester United and England winger Ashley Young.
Lewis was born on 27th September 1989 in Stevenage and began his career at Vicarage Road, although to our knowledge he would have missed Gary Johnson's spell in charge of the Hornets Academy sides. He turned professional in 2008, and had a short loan spell with Hereford United before being released.
He then moved to Burton Albion for the 2010-11 season, following a trial with the Brewers, and during that season spent time out on loan with Forest Green Rovers, but was recalled after an injury crisis. He was released at the end of that season.
Lewis played under Gary Johnson at Northampton Town during the 2011-12 season, but was released by the Cobblers, having made 34 appearances, the majority of which were during Gary's time at Sixfields. He has signed a one year contract at Huish Park, and joins Nathan Ralph, who also signed for the club earlier today.
