Yeovil Town manager Russell Slade has stated that he still holds an interest in Fisher Athletic striker Andre McCollin - but at present is unable to place a bid for him because he is injured.
McCollin came on as a substitute against Plymouth Argyle in pre-season but has not been seen since, despite an impressive run-out. Slade has told the Western Daily Press that is due to a training ground injury:
"There is an interest there but he picked up an injury in training and we haven't been able to see him in action since."
Fisher Athletic's official site are of the opinion that if the Glovers want McCollin, then they will be battling with Championship side Plymouth Argyle, who presumably were also impressed by him during the friendly. Unlike many of Yeovil's recent forays into non-league football, on this occasion there would be a fee involved as McCollin is under contract. It can probably be assumed though, that neither club will make their move until McCollin is fit again.
Elsewhere, the WDP believe goalkeeper Josh Wagenaar's contract (see yesterday's news) will be for a 12 month period. They also suggest that Cheltenham Town's interest in Lloyd Owusu is not as great as has been reported recently, with presumably the arrival of Geoff Horsfield on trial at Whaddon Road having dampened any plans the Robins may have had.
Finally, the Glovers camp will be keeping their fingers crossed that right-back Craig Alcock's virus that is currently keeping him out of training does not spread to the rest of the squad. Last season the Glovers were plagued by at least three different sets of viruses that put out multiple members of their squad at the same time, and with a much thinner squad this season, they will be praying that there is not another repeat of the situation.
