With Danny Rowe and Jordan Williams heading back to their parents clubs, Lincoln will need to bolster their attack with the addition of some high quality wingers.
Bruno Andrade currently plays for National League side Boreham Wood, and is no stranger to Imps fans. Andrade scored against City in the away fixture of our 2016-17 season, with the wide-man a constant threat all game.
The Portuguese midfielder has had somewhat of a breakout season, totalling 22 goals and 13 assists in all competitions. The Wood were defeated in the Play-Off final at Wembley by Tranmere Rovers, and Andrade was a major part in a terrific season for the southern Hertfordshire club.
Bruno Andrade started his career at Queens Park Rangers where he entered their academy setup. He would later go on to make his Premier League debut in Rangers’ 2011-12 campaign. During his five-year stay at Loftus Road, the 24-year old made loan spells at Aldershot, Wycombe and Stevenage, where he would later sign for Woking following his release from QPR.
After rejecting an offer from Woking, Andrade would sign for his now current club Boreham Wood. He is coming off the back of a stellar season at Meadow Park, so he maybe in for a busy summer.
I believe that Bruno Andrade would be a solid signing for the club, and would be a regular starter in the wider areas. He is quick, agile and always has an eye for goal.
As for all of Lincoln’s wingers, they have to be prepared to work back on the defensive end. We saw Danny Cowley adopt a 4-3-3 formation towards the back end of our season, where the collective team effort to track back was very clear.
Whether Andrade would suit this role, remains unknown. And whether the Cowley’s see potential in him, remains unknown. But his fantastic 2017-18 campaign should not go unnoticed.
