Skiverton Hails Departing Johnson

Terry Skiverton has praised Oli Johnson for his contribution during his three month loan spell with the Glovers, as he has now returned to parent club Norwich City. 

Overall the striker played 18 times for the Green and Whites netting three times, including a stunning 30 yard strike away at Tranmere Rovers.

His future is likely to lie away from Norwich however, as they look likely to gain promotion to the Premier League, which would most likely see Johnson searching for a new club as the Canaries strengthen for life in the top flight. 

The Glovers are now back down to five loanees, meaning that Andrew Tutte can come back into the squad and there shall be no unlucky 6th loan player sat in the stands. 

Speaking to the Western Gazette Skiverton praised Johnson's contribution:  

"He has been magnificent for us, he has given us a different dimension and he has opened teams up. He has been a joy to have and I have got to again thank (Norwich City manager) Paul Lambert because he has helped me out at some important times."
