Trialist goalkeeper Oliver Davies would appear to be trying his luck elsewhere. The former Swansea City academy player had been used by Yeovil Town in a couple of their pre-season friendlies, but was not visible during the Tuesday night home match against Bristol Rovers at Huish Park. With his former club Hereford's local press reporting that both the Glovers and Newport County were chasing him, the expectation was that he would be heading over the Severn Bridge, but instead he popped up at Twerton Park last night playing for Bath City.
By coincidence, they were also playing Bristol Rovers in a friendly on Wednesday night, with the Gas selecting fringe and development players for that match. Davies was named between the sticks and played the full 90 minutes which would suggest that he's now moved on from his Yeovil Town trial. With Artur Krysiak sat on the Yeovil bench on Tuesday as an unused substitute, that would imply that he is close to a return to full fitness - something that would tend to negate the need for another goalkeeper.
Bath have just got themselves a contracted goalkeeper. Former Yeovil Town youth team keeper Matt Cafer has recently returned to the South-West after spending time with Gibraltan sides College Europa and Manchester 62. Although Bath have not confirmed it, Matt has stated via his Twitter account that he has a deal in place for the coming season.
