Former Yeovil Town attacking midfielder Ollie Bassett has found himself a new club. He has signed for Northern Premier League side Coalville Town, penning a one year contract with them. There had been local media reports linking the former Southampton academy player with a move to Championship side Barnsley back in May, but there was no sign of that happening at the Yorkshire end, and in fact the Leicestershire club have stated that the 19 year old has been training with them throughout pre-season but as a trialist.
Coalville report that Ollie's arrangements had been that he would stay with them throughout the pre-season period on an informal basis on the understanding that if a Football League side came in for him, that he might walk. With no suitable deal on the table, and the 2017-18 season having started, he has now agreed to put pen to paper for a club that is close to his family home.
Ollie scored twice for Coalville in pre-season. He agreed terms with them for the 2017-18 season on Tuesday night.
