Chippenham Town have signed Andy Sandell following his departure from League One Wycombe Wanderers.

Sandell, 28, will stay at the Southern League club until January when the transfer window opens.

Chippenham manager Ady Mings told BBC Wiltshire: "His quality should shine through. It's not every day you get someone who steps out of League One."

He began his career in non-league football in Wiltshire before appearing for Bristol Rovers and Aldershot.

Sandell, who can play in defence or attack, appeared for Malmesbury and Melksham before moving to Bath ahead of his step into the Football League with Bristol Rovers.

Having left the Memorial Ground in 2007, he returned to non-league level with Salisbury City.

In 2009, Sandell joined Aldershot and then was transfered in June 2010 to Wycombe, where he has scored seven goals in 48 appearances, prior to spending the last month out on loan with Forest Green Rovers.

"If we can get the best out of him and he can provide us with that extra little bit of quality it'll give the crowd a lift and show we have still got ambition," said Mings.

"With him playing we might be able to win a few more games, get ourselves on a run.

"He's got league qualities. He's played as a left-back, a left-winger and can play as a striker.

"It's not as if you're bringing someone in who's never played at this level and doesn't understand the hustle and bustle and the physical side of the game. He's someone who can come in and hit the ground running."
