There's another youngster leaving that rich conveyor belt of youth footballers that they seem to produce down at Colyford Road with the news that 12-year-old Charlie Ledger has just left to join Yeovil Town's youth set-up, writes Stephen Birley. Town boss Mark Rooke says: "What with the success of Glen Gould at Tiverton Town and now young Charlie getting a chance to work with Yeovil Town, it is further evidence that we do things rather well at youth level." Gould, who was only 17 a week ago, has now signed a longer term contract at Tiverton Town as the Southern League outfit look to safeguard their interests in a promising youngster who has already had the scouts from far and wide looking out their routes off the M5 motorway and via the North Devon Link Road to Ladysmead. As current Seaton Town boss Mark Rooke says, the Gould rise to prominence is testimony to the youth set-up at the club. "We are all so very proud of Glen and how quickly he has established himself at the higher level. He is a really nice lad and is often to be found at the club supporting any of our sides. We are very proud of the fact that he's 'one of ours'.
