Kingsley & Sheehan Make It THREE On Loan At Yeovil

Yeovil's stand-in assistant boss Darren Way is clearly calling in some favours for the struggling Glovers

Having parted company with Westcountry legend Gary Johnson recently, Terry Skiverton has taken charge of Yeovil for the second time albeit on a temporary basis. It seems though that it's his assistant he should be thanking after the Glovers captured their second and third loan signings from Swansea City.

They've already got Liam Shepherd on loan from our development team and he's now made six ninety-minute appearances, including starts in their last five matches. He's joined by two Swansea team-mates who will definitely bolster Yeovil, who currently sit bottom of League One.

Having seen Kingsley play of late I think he'll be a revelation at that level - he's a big, strong left-back who likes to get forward and having already played over 100 senior matches he'll be very, very keen to show what he can do in competitive football. 

Sheehan on the other hand has made only the one senior first-team appearance - for the Swans against Rotherham in the League Cup earlier this season. First team football will do him the world of good, and I do think there's a good player in there. I like how he looks in the centre of the park, composed and controlling, and I'm hopeful he'll excel at Huish Park.

For any Yeovil fans reading, I think you've done very well for yourselves here. Both Sheehan and Kingsley are at the top end of the talent pool in our development squad, and hopefully these moves will be mutually beneficial with Skiverton's men climbing away from the relegation zone, and Swansea's youngsters getting some invaluable playing time.

I'll finish with a video I never tire of watching. Sheehan scoring from 45 yards in the Youth Cup Semi-final against Cardiff.
