Time at club: 2009-
A locally-born attacking full-back and former trialist who was signed on a free transfer in 2009.
Over the years, Yates has lost his first-team place to the likes of Rob Kozluk, Richard Duffy, Freddie Veseli and Ben Purkiss but has more often than not battled back to become a first-team contender.
He signed a new one-year contract in the summer of 2015 and was loaned to Northampton Town in September 2015 before he returned and agreed a new one-year deal in 2016.
