18 July 2017 : Aborted Loanee Wright On Third Trial
Former Yeovil Town loanee (sort of) Andre Wright has been given a trial with League Two side Swindon Town. The former West Bromwich Albion academy player featured in their Monday night 1-1 draw with Salisbury City although will not join them in their pre-season training camp in Portugal for non-footballing reasons.

This is Wright's third attempt to get fixed up with a club after the Baggies decided not to renew his contract at the end of last season. Whilst he was still under contract at the Hawthorns he was allowed to train with Luton Town, but they decided against making a move for him over the summer. He then turned up at League One side Gillingham in early July but nothing came of that. Now he has opted to trial for Swindon, who were relegated into League Two at the end of last season.

Wright stands as one of Yeovil Town's more unusual 'signings', having arrived at the club in January 2017. Within 48 hours though the club and West Brom were notified by the Football League that he could not play for the Glovers that season, due to his earlier Coventry City loan spell, coupled with appearances for his parent club's Under-21 side in the EFL Trophy, which would have meant that Yeovil Town's registration counted as a third club in a single season - a breach of FIFA rules on player registrations. He therefore left Huish Park without getting near a teamsheet.
