26 July 2007 : Persistence Pays Off
New Yeovil Town signing Marvin Williams has said that his decision to come to Huish Park was influenced heavily by manager Russell Slade's repeated calls for the teenager to come down to Somerset to see the set-up there.

Speaking to BBC Somerset Sound, Marvin said that he had offers elsewhere, but he felt that Yeovil wanted him more and that aspect mattered to him:

"I think it was the gaffer's persistence. He has shown a lot of interest in me over the past three or four weeks. There were one or two other clubs interested but they weren't showing as much interest as the gaffer was then. He really persisted and he really sounded as if he wanted me to come down and do a bit down there, so I thought, why not? I'm just looking forward to it now."

Marvin has moved from one League One club to another League One club, but despite Millwall having recent Championship pedigree, he believed that Yeovil Town's policy towards young players would benefit him and push his career forward:

"I'm definitely looking at it as a step forward. I'm coming in and hopefully if I get a chance to play, I'll be on the right, or the left or up front. At Millwall things weren't going the best down there. I think my age was hindering me. Down here, the gaffer's philosophy is that if you are good enough you are playing and that's fine by me, and if I am good enough to get a spot, hopefully I can keep it, and I want to push this club up into the Championship."
