Name: Alex Lawless
Date of Birth: 26 March 1985
Place of Birth: Tonypandy, Wales
Alex was born on March 26th 1985 in Tonypandy in Wales and began his career as a Cardiff City academy player, although didn't make it at that level, instead switching to play in the Welsh Football League for Ton Pentre whilst studying for his A-Levels. He then returned to professional football, signing for Fulham in 2003. Again he didn't trouble their first team plans, instead being snapped up by Leroy Rosenior who at that time was managing Torquay United in League Two. There he made his Football League debut, during the 2005-06 season, making 16 appearances for the Gulls.
Lawless then dropped into Conference level football for the following eight seasons, becoming a regular at that level. He spent three seasons with Forest Green Rovers, playing 120 times for them and scoring 10 goals, as a regular in their side. His time at the New Lawn was ended a little abruptly with a hairline fracture of the tibula ending his 2008-09 season, and in the aftermath of that he signed for York City, spending one and a half seasons at Bootham Crescent.
In November 2010, Luton Town were impressed enough by his performances to want to take him to Kenilworth Road and after an initial loan period, they signed him up for an undisclosed transfer fee. That was to lead to him playing just under six seasons for the Hatters that saw him clock up 203 appearances and 22 goals. He was part of the club's 2013-14 Conference title winning squad, but despite playing 31 times for Luton during the 2015-16 season, they made the decision to release him.
Lawless is predominantly a central midfielder, although he's been used as a right-back, and as a left-sided or right-sided midfield player in various formations, and has even played as an attacking midfielder 'in the hole' just behind the main two strikers. Overall he has over 400 appearances to his name at Conference and League Two level.
He signed a one year contract with Yeovil Town on July 29th 2016, keeping him at Huish Park until June 2017.
