Former Yeovil Town player Andy Lindegaard looks to be heading for League One rivals Cheltenham Town after he impressed significantly in a pre-season friendly at Twerton Park last night. Lindy set up one goal and scored another, playing 58 minutes in a match that saw the Robins easily overcome non-league minnows Bath City by a 4-0 scoreline.
Whilst Lindy often figured for Yeovil as a right-back, Cheltenham manager John Ward is mindful that he has another former Glover Jerry Gill playing there plus Andy Gallinagh playing in a left-back position. However, with the exception of central defence and goalkeeper, Lindy played every position on the park for the Glovers and so Ward has told the Western Daily Press that he is more tempted to use him in the right-wing position where he made his Glovers first-team debut seven years ago:
"I have invited Andy up for training on (last) Thursday and I will speak to him on Wednesday (today). He has got nearly 200 games under his belt and is a bright boy and has got plenty of appeal. I know he can play at both left and right-back. I have got Andy Gallinagh and Jerry Gill to play there and I am committed to those guys. . But it is interesting to see Andy play further up and he has said he is interested in considering that. We did that with Brian Wilson when he arrived and maybe Andy can do the same. I have instigated this with a phone call, knowing he was still available."
