Former Bristol City striker Louis Britton has left Yeovil Town after just eight weeks since signing for them. Britton joined the Glovers on November 11, but just 57 days later, he has been told he can find a new club.

The 21-year-old's contract at Huish Park has been cancelled by mutual consent, along with former Bournemouth forward Jake Scrimshaw. Ewan Clark and Sam Pearson meanwhile have returned from their loans to Bristol City, with Pearson now in the Football League with AFC Wimbledon. Yeovil still have goalkeeper Will Buse on loan, but he has mainly been second choice to Grant Smith.

Britton made just four appearances for the National League outfit, and his only goal came against Taunton Town in the Somerset Premier Cup. He had joined on a deal until the end of the season, and left the League of Ireland's Cork City, for a return to England.

In Ireland, Britton was a success at Waterford, who are owned by Fleetwood Town owner Andy Pilley. He scored 10 goals in 18 matches, and looked to have found a club that he could excel at whilst out on loan from the Robins. His contract expired in the summer however and he joined Cork City, where he failed to score or assist in his 11 matches. Cork won promotion to the top flight of Irish football, but Britton would not be joining them.

Britton was prolific for City at Under-21's level, scoring 16 goals in the 2020/21 season. He was given an opportunity in the first-team, but made just one appearance, an 18-minute cameo against Brentford on the final day of the 2020/21 campaign.

In an interview with BristolLive in July 2022, Britton claimed that he felt like first-team boss Nigel Pearson 'threw him under the bus'. Pearson said in September 2021 that Britton needed to improve his fitness levels to become a first-team player at Ashton Gate.
