19 July 2017 : Easter Spending Week In Wales In Glovers Training Camp
Yeovil Town are giving a trial to former Bristol Rovers striker Jermaine Easter. The 35 year old is training with the club during their week in South Wales, which includes the Glovers' match against Welsh Premier League side Llanelli Town tonight. Whilst he hasn't been part of the club's two pre-season friendlies so far this summer, it would appear that they have co-opted him for the trip after he featured in club photos from their training base at Vale Resort near Cardiff.

Easter has got a long string of past teams to his name - fourteen of them, to be exact - but with no one club that has defined his career. Some of his more notable success came at his last club, with his two-and-a-half years at Bristol Rovers allowing him to take in a National League and League Two promotion with them. However, they released him at the end of last season after 14 goals in 76 appearances. He had been transfer-listed by Rovers midway through their 2016-17 season in League One, but ended up sticking around until his contract ran out.

Before his stay with Rovers, he had spells with Millwall, Crystal Palace, Plymouth Argyle and Wycombe Wanderers. He was a Welsh international for seven years, gaining 12 caps. He has been studying for his UEFA A Coaching Licence at Dragon Park in Newport, admitting that he needs to start thinking about his plans beyond his playing days.

At present there is no indication of any deal for him being on the table. He joins a long list of recent trialists in pre-season that on Saturday included former Plymouth Argyle striker Louis Rooney, former Newport County wingers Jennison Myrie-Williams and Jack Compton, goalkeeper Jack Rose, left-back Connor Riley-Lowe and former Derby County midfielder Alefe Santos. However, according to manager Darren Way, only one or two are likely to get a deal.
