Manager Terry Skiverton has admitted Yeovil are a feeder club for the Football League big boys, saying the Glovers "know where they are in the pecking order".

Ed Upson, Kerrea Gilbert and Luke Ayling are just three of the players to have come to Somerset to re-establish themselves in the game after being released by Barclays Premier League or npower Championship sides.

And Skiverton is happy to give them the chance, insisting he takes great pleasure and pride in helping young footballers develop their careers - as long as they contribute to the Yeovil cause.

He told Press Association Sport: "We take players who have maybe been released by other clubs - people like Ed Upson, who I think has been outstanding this season - and we've been able to change a couple of people's strengths and weaknesses.

"That's what we look to do. We look for the type of people with real natural ability and who are willing to work hard. We take them in, they do well for us and then they go on and get the bigger contracts and go to bigger clubs.

"We know where we are in the pecking order, we accept that but we look for the next players who are out there who can go on and move into the Championship - if not with us, with another club."
