Clevedon Town striker Jack Pitcher's second trial spell with Yeovil Town may be put on hold after Clevedon manager Phil Bater expressed reservations about the timing of the trial. Pitcher was going to come back to Huish Park to work around next week's reserve team match against Bristol City
However, Clevedon face a top of the table clash against Ashford Town this weekend in the Southern League Division One West and follow that up against another home match against mid-table Bromsgrove Rovers on the following Saturday and Bater would rather the Glovers took a look at Pitcher when the two sides clash in the Somerset Premier Cup mid-way through next month (see story below).
Speaking to the Bristol Evening Post Bater explained: "It shouldn't be forgotten that Jack is still a Clevedon player and, as such, his first loyalty is to us. I'm concerned that by playing against Bristol City he may risk injury in the run-up to what is a very important game against Bromsgrove. We go to Huish Park in the county cup early next month and that will allow Yeovil's people a good look at him. That way, all parties get what they want."
