4 July 2012 : Webster Released By Cobblers - Linked With Glovers
Yeovil Town are being linked with a move for Northampton Town defender Byron Webster. The 25 year old's name was already getting mentions on social networks as being a target for the club, but this afternoon has had his contract terminated by the Cobblers. He was signed by Glovers boss Gary Johnson and was a regular at the start of the 2011-12 season.

With Johnson already wanting to being in a centre-back to replace Paul Huntington, the Leeds-born 6'3" player fits the bill. He started his career with York City before having a varied career that took in Harrogate Town, Whitby Town and Czech club FK Baník Most. In 2009 he returned to England and signed for Doncaster Rovers, during which time he had a brief loan spell with Hereford United.

He moved to Northampton in March 2011, initially on a loan basis, before signing permanently for the Cobblers that summer. He is also listed as a midfielder on Wikipedia although it would appear that this mainly relates to his earlier career.

As yet, this has not been confirmed by the club, although the expectation is that a centre-back and a goalkeeper, who are in their early 20s and mid 20s are the two players Johnson is aiming to announce in the next 24 hours. Byron Webster fits the bill of the first player, whilst Marek Stech is the most popular tip as the second player. We'll doubtless find out how good the rumourmill is shortly.
