Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson has said that he is unlikely to field all of his current trialists when the Glovers travel to Poole Town on Tuesday night. In addition to the club's ten new signings, the Glovers boss fielded five trialists in the side that drew 1-1 against Hereford United on Saturday, with three taking to the field during the first half, and two more players hoping for a contract coming on at half time.
With former Southampton centre-back Aarran Racine, Oxford City centre/right-back James Clarke and French winger/striker Salif Cisse being joined by former Swansea City duo Joe Walsh and Casey Thomas, the implication is that a number of them didn't do well enough to justify being kept on. Speaking to the Sunday Independent, Johnson explained that they had all done well in training but that he wasn't convinced by what he had seen from some during yesterday's game:
"You can always learn more about players who are on trial in a competitive game and that proved to be the case (against Hereford). Some of them had done quite well in training, but didn't do as well out there (on the pitch at Edgar Street) so won't get another chance."
As for Tuesday night's fixture at Tatnam Farm, Gary confirmed that he would be taking a strong side for the game against the Dolphins:
"At Poole on Tuesday, I'll put together what I feel is our strongest group, so the fans will see our better players."
