Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson has said that he expects to still see two more faces arrive at the club on contracted terms by the end of this week. The Glovers boss made two signings yesterday, with left-back Nathan Ralph and right-winger Lewis Young after they were released by Gary's former clubs Peterborough and Northampton Town respectively.
Last week, Johnson said that he had offers out for three or four players to join the club, and with Ralph and Young now confirmed, he told BBC Somerset that his position had not changed, and he still expected two more to make their intentions known fairly shortly:
"By the end of the week, we should have a couple more lads in. That would give me around fifteen contracted players at that point, or contracted players that I want at the club, and then we'll just have to keep our eye out for anybody that we want to add to that. We'll leave a couple of places open for the 'Roy of the Rovers' that might come along in a couple of weeks time."
Gary's reference to player he doesn't necessarily want at the club no doubt refers to attacking midfielder Anthony Edgar, who was last season told to find another club, despite being only halfway through a two year contract. The list of first team squad players currently contracted at Yeovil Town (and also viewable in the Player Profiles section of the site) are as follows:
Goalkeepers: Gareth Stewart
Defenders: Luke Ayling, Bondz N'Gala, Richard Hinds, Curtis Haynes-Brown, Jamie McAllister, Nathan Ralph
Central Midfielders: Dominic Blizzard, Ed Upson
Attacking Midfielders: Lewis Young, Keanu Marsh-Brown, Sam Foley, Gavin Williams, Anthony Edgar
Strikers: Reuben Reid, James Hayter
