LUFC Sheehan ready to battle for starting place

Alan Sheehan is hoping to put himself back in the first team picture after playing his first game of pre season at Shelbourne on Tuesday night.

The 22 year old will be hoping to impress and improve his game under boss Simon Grayson like a number of others did in the second half of last season.

The left back hasn`t started a League game since the disappointing 2-0 home defeat by Carlisle United last season and then fell behind Ben Parker in the pecking order.

Sheehan`s days at Elland Road looked to be numbered when he was sent out on loan at Crewe Alexandra, injury brought a premature end to the loan and he returned to training two weeks ago.

The Irishman is now hoping to put together a good run of performances and work his way back into the starting eleven, speaking on the official website Sheehan said "I was delighted to hear when the manager said everyone was starting from scratch again".

Sheehan has tough competition in the left back position with Ben Parker and Aiden White both impressing in that position and it`s a good headache for Grayson to have.

Sheehan is aware of the hard job he faces when continuing he said "I`ve got to work hard this year and take my chance when it comes".

For me he's definitely third choice behind Parker and White, he's got a good left foot and takes a decent free kick but he's to much of a liabilit, his two sending offs at Yeovil and Swindon were both reckless.

Agree Daz i have him has 3rd choice as well

It looks like Grayson is testing out Aiden White in Left Midfield (In anticipation of losing Delph ???) so maybe Sheehan will be No2 behind Parker although I have not been impressed by him. His personal inconsistency typified our problems late 2008 early 2009.

3rd choice, almost deadwood! Doesnt offer the attacking option that the other two do
