Canadian goalkeeper Josh Wagenaar has left Yeovil Town. This morning's BBC Somerset sports bulletin reports that he has left the club after failing to respond to a contract offer from the club and manager Terry Skiverton will now turn his attentions to signing another goalkeeper. Wagenaar has been on international duty with Canada this summer, but has not indicated either way what his plans were likely to be once the tournament ended. However, Skiverton has now made the decision for him and he leaves the Glovers after 27 appearances during one season at Huish Park.
Skiverton has spoken to the Western Daily Press about the decision and says that a failure to respond to the offer made him look elsewhere:
"I've spoken to Josh's representative and Josh will be looking elsewhere now. He's not in our plans. We had an offer that was ready to go out to him but we didn't hear back from him in the time frame specified. Josh is now a free agent and we are now looking elsewhere to fill the goalkeeping position at the club."
The Glovers currently have two trialists goalkeepers on their books, with former Hartlepool United keeper Arran Lee-Barrett and former Manchester City shot-stopper Richard Martin having played in the club's two matches in North Devon.
