Sandell walks away from the Blues
Wycombe Wanderers defender Andy Sandell has left Wycombe Wanderers after his contract was terminated by mutual consent.
The 28-year-old left-sided player joined Conference Premier side Forest Green Rovers on a three-month loan deal from the Wanderers on Monday 10th October. He has however made just three appearances for the Gloucestershire outfit.
Sandell signed a two-year deal at Adams Park on a free transfer following the expiry of his contract at Aldershot Town at the end of June 2010 to link up with former manager Gary Waddock.
He was a regular at left-back during the 2010/2011 season making 37 first team appearances, scoring 7 goals. He will be remembered for scoring a couple of excellent free-kicks as the Chairboys went on to clinch promotion from League Two.
He also played in the opening eleven games in League One this season before suffering a 'shoulder injury' during the 2-1 defeat at Rochdale on 1st October. It was to be his last appearance in the Oxford and Cambridge Blue quarters.
His place was taken by defender Grant Basey, who joined on an initial one-month loan from Championship side Peterborough United. That deal was extended last week to the end of December 2011.
Upon joining Forest Green Rovers he was quoted in the Stroud News and Journal as saying: 'I always give 100 per cent and don`t like losing, but I was fed up with the travelling to Wycombe and playing left-back.'
'I had fallen out of love with the game, but I intend to get that love back with Forest Green and enjoy myself again.'
'I played up front for Salisbury and scored a few goals, so the opportunity to play up front alongside my best mate Charlie Griffin was a massive draw for me.'
'I want to see what Forest Green are like and they can do the same. If the trial period goes well, we will have to wait and see.'
The club announced his departure today in a brief statement on the official website.
