GLOVERS CHERRY PICK THE CROP...

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS - By Rich Dore

ED­DIE Howe has re­vealed why Yeovil is the ideal de­vel­op­ment club to send his Bournemouth youth tal­ent on loan.

Cher­ries for­ward Sam Sur­ridge, 19, joined the Glovers this week on a sea­son-long loan deal and fol­lows Matt Butcher and Ben Whit­field, who have joined in re­cent years.

Speak­ing af­ter the Cher­ries’ 3-1 pre-sea­son win over Yeovil on Wed­nes­day, Howe said: “We feel that Dar­ren (Way, Yeovil boss) and Terry (Skiver­ton, assistant), who we’ve known for a long time, are re­ally good peo­ple and good coaches.

“It’s very im­por­tant, when you’ve got tal­ented young guys com­ing through, that they have a place to play and a good home with good peo­ple.”

Sur­ridge scored eight goals on loan at Poole last sea­son. Way said: “We feel this next move is a fan­tas­tic move for Sam and Yeovil.

“We must thank Ed­die Howe for trust­ing us with the de­vel­op­ment of his young tal­ent.”

PRAISE: Ed­die Howe
