Yeovil Town's pre-season friendly against Stratford Town on Saturday afternoon featured three trialists in their starting line-up. Brief profiles of them are as follows:
Tom Bradbury: No. 6 Shirt. Born Feb 27th 1998 (Aged 21). Central defender. A former Milton Keynes Dons academy player who went on to play for Bishop's Stortford and Banbury United. He was signed up by Scottish side Dundee to play for their Reserve Team during the 2018-19 season, and then spent the second half of the season on loan with National League North side York City. Last season he appeared twice for Dundee's first team, with both coming in the Scottish Challenge Cup. He sat on their first team bench once in the Scottish Premiership but didn't get onto the pitch.
James Craigen: No. 8 Shirt. Born March 28th 1991 (Aged 28) in Preston. Midfielder. Part of Preston North End's youth set-up for ten years but didn't get as far as professional terms with him. Instead he went to Edinburgh University, playing for their representative side, before moving into Scottish League football. Since 2012, he's played for Partick Thistle (88 appearances, 4 goals), Forfar Athletic (loan, 11 appearances, 2 goals), Raith Rovers (42 appearances, 9 goals) and Falkirk (51 appearances, 7 goals). His most recent club was Dunfermline Athletic in the Scottish Championship. He made 59 apppearances for them, scoring twice, with 41 of those appearances coming during last season. He is a free agent, having left them at the end of last season.
Bradley Ash: No. 10 Shirt. Born April 5th 1996 (Aged 23) in Weston-Super-Mare. Started his career in his home town before Barnsley signed him in January 2016. They loaned him back to Weston in September 2016, and that was followed by him spending the 2017-18 season on loan with Boreham Wood. A knee injury though scuppered that loan deal, and it took a year before their fans saw him play, when he signed for them on a permanent basis in the summer of 2018. Last season saw him make 28 National League main division appearances, plus one more in the FA Cup, scoring five goals.
