More Information

After signing his first professional contract in May 2017, Matt Yates stepped up to Derby County’s Under-23s squad on a permanent basis for the start of the 2017/18 campaign.

A consistent starter throughout his scholarship, Yates has been on the books of the Derby County Academy since the age of nine and is the son of former Rams defender Dean Yates.

Initially joining Gloucester City at the beginning of the 2018/19 National League South campaign on a three-month deal, 20-year-old Yates joins the Bulls on loan, as one of Marc Richards’ first signings at Edgar Street alongside former Derby teammate Ethan Wassall.

Recording 14 appearances for Gloucester so far this season before his loan move to Edgar Street, Yates will now face a competitive battle with Martin Horsell for the right to wear the Bulls ‘Number One’ jersey.
