Lucas Tomlinson signs for Yate Town

As Darren Mullings continues to build his squad for the coming season, he is pleased to have acquired the services of 23 year old Lucas Tomlinson who played in the Welsh League for Barry Town last season.

Tomlinson was a product of the Bristol Rovers academy, which he joined at the age of 10 and signed a professional contract with the “Gas” in 2019 and then had loan spells at Bath City and Torquay United before signing for Vanarama National League North side Gloucester City. He joined Salisbury at the start of season 2022/2023 and moved to Yate Town in March 2023, making 7 appearances and scoring three goals, scoring on his debut at Beaconsfield in a game that Yate lost 2-3.

After signing for the club Lucas said, “I am delighted to be here and be involved in the project. Having been here before I know how much of a good family club this is and talking to Darren, I feel that this is the right move for me to start enjoying my football again and get some goals and get Yate Town back to where they should be.”

Darren Mullings, pleased to announce his third major signing for the coming season commented, ”This is a deal that I am delighted to get over the line. Lucas is a player I wanted to bring to the club for some time now. I feel his creative qualities and attributes will add a lot to our team. I look forward to seeing him in a Yate Town shirt.”
