Former Yeovil Town defender Rhys Baggridge is on trial with Conference South side Salisbury City. The former Youth Team captain has been playing in a series of pre-season friendlies for the Whites during pre-season. The Welshman's appearances in matches against Frome Town and Reading earlier this month have been low key, but his identity couldn't be hidden when the Wiltshire club travelled to play Poole Town tonight. As far as we can see Rhys has yet to be offered a deal there.
Meanwhile former Yeovil Town striker Craig Calver has signed up with Conference South side Chelmsford City. The 21 year old has had a slightly nomadic career, playing for Harlow Town, St Albans City, Braintree Town and Bishop's Stortford. However he has revealed that his link up with Chelmsford has come through his time with Southend United, with their boss Glenn Pennyfather having had both playing and coaching roles at Roots Hall:
"I knew Glenn from my time with Southend and it's a great opportunity for me to come to Chelmsford. I'm already mates with some of the players and it's been much easier than I thought to fit in here - everyone's been great. I'm convinced I can do well at this level and intend to take the chances which come to me."
