Lewis Simper has joined Yeovil Town on a season-long loan…
The 19-year-old Academy graduate signed a new deal with the Club earlier this Summer and will now aim to further increase his senior experience with the Glovers in the National League.
Mark Bonner said, “This loan gives Lewis an excellent opportunity to build on his strong conclusion to last season, stepping up a level to the National League. A loan for Lewis was always a strong possibility this season, and the recent addition of Jensen Weir and this opportunity coming about now, makes it the perfect time for him to experience a first team environment with a more realistic chance of senior match minutes.
“We have seen how good Darren Sarll and Yeovil Town have been for Tom Knowles and hope that Lewis will rise to the challenge of competing for a regular starting place in the team, coping with the physical demands that brings and adjusting to a new environment.
“When Lewis signed an extension to his contract in the summer we highlighted his potential and believe this is the nest next step in his development towards our First Team.”
The Club would like to wish Lewis the best of luck whilst at Yeovil Town this season.
