A falling out with manager Alan Pridham almost saw him leave the following season but when this was sorted he began to show the sort of form he was capable of and this looked to continue into the 2002-03 campaign before a freak accident while celebrating a goal at Chippenham sidelined him for 4 months. On his return he began to attract the attention of Yeovil Town and signed for them in August 2003. Failed to make a real impact at Huish Park and ended the season on loan with Aldershot Town.
