Yeovil boss urges Twitter fan scouting

Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton has asked the club's fans to act as scouts by suggesting potential signings on Twitter.

Skiverton, 35, says that the Glovers "can't afford a scouting system" and has urged supporters to offer their opinions on the League One side's transfer policy.

Yeovil finished 14th last season and Skiverton is determined that some "amateur scouting" could help the club unearth some gems.

"It's not a bit of fun for me - it's serious business," Skiverton told BBC Somerset. "I can't afford a scouting system. I've got 1,700 followers [now almost 1,900] and out of that I've got quite a few names and there's been some interesting ones."

"There's been so many players who have come through and we are following a couple of those leads. There was one or two that I had glossed over, that I've come back to.

"I think it gives the supporters a bit of fun as well as I've had supporters go through non-league annuals, going out and watching games saying 'what about this player?'.

"I'd like to thank the supporters for adding a bit of amateur scouting, it's worked out really well for us."
