Yeovil Town have lost the services of midfielder Oscar Gobern. The 27 year old has rejected the terms offered to him by the Glovers at the end of the 2017-18 season, and has signed a one year deal with National League side Eastleigh for the 2018-19 season. The club gave out offers to Gobern and Omar Sowunmi who were both out of contract at the end of last season, but the former Southampton, Queens Park Rangers and Mansfield Town midfielder will now relocate to Hampshire. Gobern gave his view on the deal:
"After speaking to the Gaffer and Strevs (Ben Strevens) it was clear what their intentions are and it was a no brainer for me to come down. The potential this club has is tremendous and I want to be a part of it."
Manager Andy Hessenthaler confirmed the deal and said that his board had been putting a lot of effort in behind the scenes to get the deal completed:
"I am absolutely thrilled to get this over the line. He has a decent pedigree and played at a good level. He is young and hungry and will be a big addition to the playing squad. I would also like to thank the club in their efforts to get the deal completed. I know there has been a lot of hard work gone on behind the scenes and I canít thank them enough."
Overall Gobern made 14 appearances for the club, having made his debut in December 2017. He leaves on a free transfer, and will officially become an Eastleigh player on July 1st.
