Russell Slade has this afternoon confirmed that Trinidad & Tobago World Cup defender Cyd Gray has been unsuccessful in his trial at Huish Park, and has now left the club.

Cyd arrived in Yeovil at the start of the week for a trial, with the prospect of gaining a contract, and joining the squad as either a right back of in the centre of defence.

His quest to impress the manager was however hampered by the fact that there was no reserve team game this week, so he couldn't prove himself in competitive action.

Then later in the week Mark Lynch arrived on loan from Hull City and made an impressive debut down at Southampton in the Carling Cup.

And as Russell explained to this afternoon this brought his interest in the former World Cup Star to an end:

"I've let Cyd go," he said

"He came for the week, and he worked hard, but I was very pleased with the performance of Mark Lynch who made his debut on Wednesday, and I don't feel that we have a problem in that area right now."

Russell went on to discuss the Lynch situation, saying that Hull City are keen to let him come to Huish Park permanently should his loan continue to go well.

But as the Gaffer explained, it also largely depends on the player's point of view:

"It depends on whether the player wants to drop down a division; and whether he wants to come to Yeovil" Russ said

"So far the signs are good, and more importantly, let his football do the talking, let him enjoy his football here, let him perform and perform to a good level, and we'll see what we can do.

"I thought that he had a splendid debut.

"I thought he was very very steady, did all the right things and I was delighted that he was involved in the goal that got us one back at the death on Wednesday night."
