We are very pleased to confirm the signing of attacking midfielder Dan McBeam. The 19 year old has trialed in the Peacocks’ last two friendlies against Bristol City and Yeovil Town and his signature maintains the trend of reducing the average age of the squad. He has previously been with Reading at U18 level before signing a contract at Barnsley in November 2018. He then left the Yorkshire club in the summer of 2019 and ended up last season playing for Mangotsfield United.

Dan told Taunton town.com:” I’m delighted to have signed for this great club. Seeing the set-up, the fans, and the way the manager wants to play and also how the players made me feel welcome was a no brainer for me. I can’t wait to get going and contribute to the team as much as I can with goals and assists.”

Head of Football Rob Dray remarked:” Dan’s enthusiasm has made his mark and that’s what you want as a manager from a trialist. He’s hungry to succeed and his technical ability alongside that will make him a great addition to the squad.”

Welcome to the club Dan!
