Yeovil keep tabs on keeper Bull

Skiverton is looking for an experienced goalkeeper

Yeovil manager Terry Skiverton said he will monitor Nikki Bull's availability after it was confirmed the goalkeeper will be leaving Aldershot.

The 27-year-old will leave the League Two side at the end of the month.

"He is someone that interests me. He's a good goalkeeper at a good age and he's got great league experience," Skiverton told BBC Somerset.

Yeovil plan to offer Richard Martin a deal after the former Manchester City keeper impressed on trial.

The 21-year-old played in both of Yeovil's matches on the club's pre-season tour in North Devon, and Skiverton hopes to have agreed a deal by the end of the week.

"He's going to be good for the future, and he's had a great upbringing at Manchester City. I am looking at him being the number two.

"I've been really impressed with what he's done so far. He's an excellent shot-stopper but there's still a couple of areas he's got to work on in his game.

"For us it's very much a development contract and he's someone I'd be looking at getting into the team in the future."

Yeovil have released another keeper, Arran Lee-Barrett, and defender Niall McArdle after trials.

But former Aston Villa striker Sam Williams looks set for an extended stay at Huish Park. The 22-year-old scored against Grimsby on Friday night.

"He's a young lad with a lot to work on but he's done well so far. We don't want it to be a flash in the pan so I want to see him over a week or two," added Skiverton.

"I know his agent well so if there would be a chance of doing something I wouldn't see a problem."
