4 April 2019 : Complete League Two Agent Payments List - Glovers See Small Rise
The Football Association have released financial figures detailing the use of Football Agents within each division. The figures cover a benchmark of February 1st 2018 until January 31st 2019, covering up until the last transfer window. The published document shows that Yeovil Town paid out 27,931 in agents' fees, compared to the 23,840 they paid out during the previous twelve month period between February 2017 and January 2018. The values paid has been gradually on the rise, with 13,686 paid out during the 2016-17 period, whilst between October 2015 and February 2016 benchmark there was just 1,248 paid out.

For the second year running, every club paid out money to Football Agents. At the top, former League One sides Northampton Town and Milton Keynes Dons were two of the bigger spenders, with Mansfield Town once again being near the top. At the foot, Exeter City and Crewe Alexandra's Academy systems allow them to keep costs down, whilst it's no surprise to find Morecambe and Macclesfield Town as two of the lowest payers to Agents. The only surprise is that former League One side Bury, who are gunning for promotion from League Two were one of lowest clubs in terms of payments.

The full list is as follows:

Northampton Town 92,125; Milton Keynes Dons 80,263; Mansfield Town 77,932; Chelteham Town 61,253; Port Vale 60,027; Oldham Athletic 55,551; Notts County 55,130; Cambridge United 48,930; Lincoln City 44,434; Forest Green Rovers 40,431; Colchester United 38,642; Stevenage 38,460; Grimsby Town 38,104; Crawley Town 32,160; Newport County 31,952; Yeovil Town 27,931; Carlisle United 27,431; Tranmere Rovers 26,112; Swindon Town 18,000; Exeter City 14,490; Morecambe 13,486; Crewe Alexandra 10,638; Bury 6,075; Macclesfield Town 1,000.

The Football Association's data also identifies which players Yeovil Town signed which attracted payments to agents. They don't disclose the individual amounts and it should be noted that some players agents receive payments on an interim/phased basis - i.e. the list of players are not necessarily new signings, but may have coincided with new contract deals being signed, with obvious examples being Omar Sowunmi and the second payment to Yoann Arquin's agent.

The list of players that attracted agent payments, with their agents shown in brackets, are as follows:

30/06/18 : Carl Dickinson (Jonathan Hassall, Beswicks Sports)
03/07/18 : Gary Warren (Peter Conning, Sports Consulting Limited)
16/07/18 : Omar Sowunmi (James Featherstone, Omnisports Limited)
22/07/18 : Sessi D'Almeida (Bruce Tumenta)
02/08/18 : Yoann Arquin (Bruce Tumenta)
03/08/18 : Wes McDonald (Liam Bowes, OYS Sports Management)
27/12/18 : Yoann Arquin (Bruce Tumenta)
09/01/19 : Adel Gafaiti (Bruce Tumenta)
19/01/19 : Matt Worthington (Matthew Krupnik-Kay)
31/01/19 : Courtney Duffys (Alex Levack, Sidekick Management)

A couple of things worth noting from the above list - Peter Conning is a former Yeovil Town midfielder who had two spells at the club between 1988 and 1992 and then during the 1994-95 season. Meanwhile Bruce Tumenta's name pops up a lot - he is also the agent representing Francois Zoko, meaning he has a vested interest in at least four of the Glovers playing squad. If a player's name does not feature in the list above, it can be assumed that there was no payment made to an agent when he signed for the club - Ryan Seager and Stuart Nelson fall into this camp.
