WINGER Zavon Hines appears to be on trial with League Two side Swindon Town this week.

Having posted video of the players training on social media on Monday, an unfamiliar face emerged in the footage training alongside new signing Amine Linganzi, with the club only able to state that they have a number of triallists training at Beversbrook Sports Facility this week.

However, another social media post this afternoon, which includes a series of pictures, shows manager David Flitcroft standing by a tactics board, with the name Hines written in red pen on the right wing of one of the two formations.

The 28-year-old West Ham United youth player, who has two England Under 21 caps and goals to his name, spent last year at Southend United.

However, having made just five appearances for the Shrimpers, the winger was one of five players released by the League One side at the end of his contract last month.

Hines previously had a trial with Swindon under Paolo Di Canio during the 2011-12 season.

Meanwhile, the tactics board, of which Flitcroft is pictured next to, reveals some interesting insight into how Swindon could line-up during their pre-season campaign, which starts away at Swindon Supermarine this weekend.

In the top line-up, Flitcroft has set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation, with teenagers Jake Evans and Tom Smith, who were both on loan at Waterford last season, playing as the full-backs, roles they played for the development team last term.

Summer recruit James Dunne occupies the holding midfield role, with illustrations showing that Jordan Simpson, who signed his first professional deal last week, and Jesse Starkey, will be urged to get forward to support Paul Mullin up front, with Jordan Young and John Goddard playing behind the striker.

Meanwhile, the second formation, a basic 4-4-2, holds another mystery, with recent addition Olly Lancashire partnered with another central defender who goes by the name of 'CeCe'.

Ben Purkiss, another summer signing, is at right-back and second-year scholar Louis Spalding is at left-back.

James Brophy and Hines provide the width to the side, with Amine Linganzi, who is the latest player to be brought in by Flitcroft, and Conor Thomas forming a central midfield partnership.

Striker Luke Norris is partnered by Scott Twine, who made his senior Swindon debut in the final game of last season from the bench against Charlton Athletic, up top.
