League Two side Bristol Rovers have continued their tendency to recruit in former Yeovil Town players today, by bringing goalkeeper Sam Walker in on loan. The Gas have taken the 20 year old Chelsea player on loan until January 2nd, after they lost Scott Bevan to a wrist injury, and suffered delays in their plans to sign former Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Paul Smith.
Sam made 20 appearances for Yeovil Town last season as part of a loan spell, and was at one stage thought to be heading back to Huish Park, until West Ham United released Marek Stech, and the Glovers signed the Czech Republic keeper up on a free transfer. Sam made his debut for Rovers tonight in their 3-1 defeat against Ipswich Town, playing the full 90 minutes.
Meanwhile Clevedon Town have signed up midfielder Alex Russell after he left Bath City at the end of last season. The former Liverpool trainee will celebrate his 40th birthday during the coming season, and will play at Southern League Division One South & West level for his new club.
Former defender Curtis Ujah has signed a deal with Southern League Premier Division side St Albans City after spending pre-season at Clarence Park on trial. He was playing for Hayes and Yeading United last season, but now the 24 year old will play under manager David Howell, who believes his recruitment of the former Reading trainee is a big coup:
"I am delighted to have secured Curtis's services. He has the potential to be a big figure for us and to acquire a player of his quality shows just how much the club means business this season."
Meanwhile former winger/striker Gavin McCallum who rose through the club's Youth and Reserve ranks, has signed for Conference National side Woking. The 24 year old was last on the books of Lincoln City but left them by mutual consent midway through last season.
Finally, former trialist James Clarke has found himself a new home, having signed for Conference South side Salisbury City. The former Oxford City player left Huish Park earlier this season after playing in three pre-season fixtures, and has now agreed terms with the Whites today, having played in two of their pre-season fixtures. First team manager Darrell Clarke has said of Clarke's arrival:
"Iím delighted to be bringing James into our squad for the new season. He brings in experience of playing at a higher level and Iíve been very impressed with his winning mentality in the two pre-season games he has played for us."
