Yeovil Town have taken St Albans City striker David Moyo on trial. The 24 year old is a former Northampton Town and Brackley Town player, who is currently out of contract with the National League South side. They had offered him a new contract, but at this stage their understanding is that he will not be returning to sign it.
Moyo spent one season with the Hertfordshire side, and finished as their top goalscorer, netting 15 times in 49 appearances, with his league statistics showing 14 goals in 40 appearances. Born in Harare, Zimbabwe on December 17th 1994 (aged 24) he was on the books of AFC Dunstable as a youth before Northampton Town offered him a two year scholarship. They gave him a professional deal in October 2012 and he went on to make 18 appearances for the Cobblers, scoring two goals, with 15 of those appearances coming from the bench.
During his time at Sixfields, Moyo had loan spells with Stamford and Brackley Town, before moving to the latter on a permanent basis in January 2015. He made just short of 100 league appearances with them before spending the 2017-18 season on the books of Hemel Hempstead Town. Then came his 2018-19 move to St Albans. Manager Ian Allinson has implied that the door still remains open for Moyo to return, but he is currently working on the basis that he won't:
"We spoke to David Moyo at length. We offered him a deal but he wants to go full-time, he's at that age where he feels this is the last opportunity for him. I think he's having a spell at Yeovil this week. Good luck to these boys but sometimes you have to move on and you have to rebuild your side."
