AFC Totton have signed Southampton’s Harvey Woods on loan.
Woods, a striker from Bath who turns 19 on Saturday 15 October, has recently been playing in the Southern League Premier Division South on loan at Poole Town.
He made his debut for The Dolphins in their FA Cup match against Salisbury, going on to make three appearances for them in September. He’s a graduate of the Southampton Academy and has been a member of the Saints U18 squad.
“Harvey is a young player who shows a lot of promise as a striker," said AFC Totton Manager, Jimmy Ball, whose side are preparing to take on Slimbridge AFC in the Southern League Div.1 South at the Snows Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
"I’m looking forward to helping him continue his development and I’d like to thank Southampton for their co-operation in getting this deal finalised.”
Welcome to The Stags, Harvey.
Meanwhile, midfielder Seung-Woo Yang has been recalled from his loan deal at the Snows Stadium by his parent club Eastleigh.
Seung came to the club in September and made his Stags debut in the re-arranged Isuzu FA Trophy 1st Round Qualifying victory over Slimbridge AFC. He also started in the Hampshire Senior Cup match at AFC Portchester and the Southampton Senior Cup win at Ringwood Town, as well as coming off the bench against Berkhamsted.
"Seung is a cracking lad - an extremely technically gifted player who works very hard in training," said AFC Totton boss Jimmy Ball.
"I'm sorry to see him go but I wish him all the best with his continued development at his parent club."
