Winger turned striker Andy Lindegaard gave Yeovil manager Gary Johnson a reminder of his value to the Glovers squad with a hat-trick against Frome Town in a friendly last night at Badgers Hill.
In a game that featured a blend of bench-warmers, youth teamers and trialists, Lindegaard grabbed all the goals in a 3-0 win as Johnson gave those who didn't start in Tuesday's 3-1 win over Leigh RMI a chance to stretch their legs.
Lindy got his first on 30 minutes when he intercepted a poor cross-field defensive pass and ran through the middle of the Frome defence. His second was scored two minutes after the break when he thumped the ball home from a narrow angle following a corner, whilst his hat-trick came after he brought down a Jimmy Aggrey long ball, beat two defenders and slotted the ball home with just an hour gone. The match ended with Aggrey playing as a striker, Chris Giles playing as a defender, and Nick Crittenden playing as a central midfielder!
Crittenden was able to build up his fitness as he looks to return following a groin operation, whilst there were also two trialists on view. Lee Mudd is a Belfast-born 21 year old midfielder who has played for Glentoran, Stockport County, Bolton Wanderers, Newry Town, and Crusaders. Mudd has also gained international honours with Northern Ireland's Under 16 and Under 18 sides. Nothing is known of the other trialist, who went under the name of Jay Smith - though this is believed to be a pseudonym, with Johnson preferring to keep the player's real identity under wraps for the moment.
