Southampton have announced the signing of 19 year old Tommy Scott, as he joins from Yeovil, signing a one year deal.
Here’s what academy director Matt Hale has had to say about the signing:
“Tommy has really impressed us during pre-season with some solid performances and a strong appetite for learning in his training programme. He has a good foundation in which for us to help him build and develop further. Tommy will be a competitive addition to our already progressive young goalkeeping group in the Academy’s professional development phase.”
Scott has spent his entire career at Yeovil, progressing through their youth academy. Unfortunately Scott never made an appearance for Yeovil, but did make 6 appearances on the bench for the senior side.
Fantasy Football Potential
Scott will join up with the Southampton under-23’s for the upcoming season and it will therefore be highly unlikely that Scott will feature in the Premier League this season, let alone fantasy football!
