Josh Lundstram Emerges As Possible Right-Back Cover

16 July 2019

Academy graduate certainly caught the eye with his half an hour at right-back in 6-0 in over Altrincham.

Josh Lundstram’s impressive cameo performance at right-back at Altrincham last Saturday certainly caught the eye of many, none more so than his manager David Artell.

The versatile Academy product usually plays in central midfield but he showed another string to his bow by slotting in at right full-back with ease.

Eager to press forward and competitive enough to steal possession back on a number of occasions, Lundstram has enchanced his chances of making his senior debut sooner rather than later no harm at all.

Artell told “Josh is a good player and Saturday gave us the opportunity to look at him in a different position. Wherever he plays on the pitch, not a lot gets past him and it was the same against Altrincham when he came on and played at right-back.

“Could he get in the first team playing that position? Maybe, maybe not. But it is another string to his bow and he has shown that he could be good enough to play right-back if we need him to.

“The pre-season gives us a chance to find things out and Josh and a few others equipped themselves well. It was another positive to come out of Saturday certainly.”
