Yeovil Town right-back/utility player Andy Lindegaard has extended his stay at Huish Park by another year by extending his existing contract by another season.
Andy has been involved with the club for eight years now having worked his way up through the Reserve Team ranks where he was part of the Les Phillips Cup winning side of 1998-99.
He was brought into the first team for the first time in February 2000 in a County Cup game under Steve Thompson, but his full league debut during the following month created headlines when Chairman John Fry had to beg the Yeovil branch of Marks and Spencers to give him the day off from Lindy's Saturday job for a trip to Doncaster Rovers! Lindy was given his first ever football contract in May 2000 by David Webb and the problems of getting Saturdays off work suddenly went away.
Six years later and Lindy has never looked back, collecting winners medals for the FA Trophy, Nationwide Conference and League Two titles, and in doing so has clocked up 174 appearances, scoring 12 goals. For a club on a small budget he is invaluable - the player that can play in almost any position on the pitch and still not look out of place.
Speaking to the official site, Andy said of the contract extension: "I am delighted to have agreed a deal with the club. I am, as you all know, a Yeovil lad and it is great playing for my home town club. We have a new manager in Russell Slade and I am looking forward to meeting him and getting back to pre-season training after my holiday."
The news leaves just two existing senior players - Paul Terry and Colin Miles - needing to respond to the club concerning the contracts that are out on offer to the pair.
