Yeovil Town's goalscorer today at Huish Park appears to be French striker Achille Campion. Hailing from Levallois in France, Achille was born on March 10th 1990, and thus is 24 years old. Inevitably details on his past career is fairly sketchy but his last club was Swedish tier three side Norrby IF, joining them in early 2014.
Prior to that he played for UC Santa Barbara who are an amateur NCAA Division I College team affiliated to the University. Achille studied there, majoring in Economics. During his final year playing for the College side, he scored seven goals in 14 starts, but missed the final five games of their campaign due to an injury.
Achille's name came to light earlier in pre-season at Sheffield Wednesday, where he played for them in a pre-season match against York City. The 6'2" centre-forward had been on trial with the Owls for a fortnight, but they decided not to offer him a deal after that single friendly match.
He is understood to be the player that provided the 'assist' for Kamel Chergui at Torquay United on Tuesday, and scored from a Liam Davis free kick today. The player himself has confirmed he is at Huish Park, via his Twitter account, saying today:
"After a good two weeks with Sheffield Wednesday, it was good to play against Championship side Reading FC and get a goal for Yeovil Town. Love English football."
The expectation is that most, if not all, of today's 'unnamed' trialists will be given a further chance in the club's next pre-season friendly against Bristol Rovers on Tuesday night.
