James Hayter is keen to put a disappointing season to the back of his mind and focus on returning to regular first team action with Yeovil Town.

The experienced striker completed a return south last week following a frustrating final season with Doncaster Rovers. The Isle of Wight-born player scored consistently in more than 100 appearances for the relegated South Yorkshire outfit, but started just 20 games in 2011-12, coming off the bench 13 times.

Hayter said: “Last season was not great in terms of the amount of games I started. I was always involved in terms of starting I did not start as many games as I would like so hopefully I can start a lot more games, play more regularly and hopefully score some goals as well.”

The 32-year-old rose to prominence at AFC Bournemouth, netting 107 times in more than ten years in Dorset.

Hayter said moving closer to his roots was both a football and personal decision. “I wanted to get something done sooner rather than later.

“I from near this area, spoke to the manager and new a couple of people and they were all keen for me to come down so it all worked out and I am pleased to be here.

“My family are not far away and I still have a lot of friends in Bournemouth. My partner is from there so she has her family and friends there so it made sense geographically.

“I had five years up north and I fancied coming back south so it all fitted nicely. I came and had a look at the club, it was all positive so I am just happy to join.”
