YEOVIL TOWN New boss signs Somerset-born Wilkinson

ytfc logoNew Yeovil Town manager Darren Sarll has made his first signing of the summer by securing the services of Somerset-born Stevenage defender Luke Wilkinson subject to clearance.

Wilkinson, 28 and originally from Wells, arrives at Huish Park on a free transfer after making 118 appearances for Stevenage during a three-year spell in League Two.

Signing a two-year deal with Yeovil, the experienced central defender again links up with his former boss after becoming a regular during Sarll’s Stevenage tenure at Broadhall Way.

Reunited with the six foot two tall defender, Sarll says: “I’m delighted to be reacquainted with Luke, a player and person I know very well. He brings defensive qualities, experience and a physicality I feel we were lacking.

“Even better, Luke is a Somerset lad and he and his family want to return ‘home’ and live in this part of the world. He’s bought into being part of this football club and will be a great addition to the squad.”

Having spent the majority of his career playing for clubs close to the capital, Wilkinson returns closer to his Wells roots where he was selected by Bristol City to join their academy side, which competed in the Premier Academy League. 

Moving on from Ashton Gate, he had spells at the likes of Portsmouth, Dagenham & Redbridge and Luton before joining Boro in the fourth tier.
