Yeovil Town have signed former Conference South defender Calvin Brooks on non-contract terms. The 19 year old has been on the books of Dorchester Town as a central defender, having come through local football to join the Magpies. He had been on the edge of their first team over the past year or so, but suggestions on the Magpies Fans Forum were that manager Phil Simkin did not see eye-to-eye with him, and he has been frozen out for most of this season.
Brooks is better known at Dorchester as their full time Community Officer - there's no sign as yet whether he will give up that role at this stage, given that the Glovers terms at present merely involve registering him as a player. Born in Dortmund, Brooks has already played in a behind closed doors friendly. According to the Western Gazette this was at the recommendation of former Glovers midfielder Nick Crittenden, who had played at the Avenue Stadium with Brooks, but is now also working at Yeovil Town in the accounts department. Brooks will train with the club on a full time basis - we suspect that for the 2013-14 season he will be very much there as 'squad filler' given that there are currently only nine matches of the 2013-14 season remaining.
