YEOVIL Town striker Luke Rodgers has been cautioned by police following an incident in the town earlier this month.

The 27 year old, who joined the Glovers initially on loan in December, was stopped while driving in Lyde Road on the afternoon of Friday 17 April.

Avon and Somerset Police refused to name the man but the Western Gazette has learned it was Mr Rodgers.

A force spokesman said: "We dealt with an incident in Lyde Road and as a result of that, a 27-year-old male was arrested and given an adult caution for a public order offence."

Huish Park chief executive Martyn Starnes confirmed the club would be disciplining the striker.

"We are aware of the incident and will be dealing with any discipline issues arising from that in-house," he said.

Mr Rodgers switched to Yeovil from Port Vale in November last year on a one-month deal that was extended to last until the end of 2008.

After scoring two goals against Millwall and Swindon Town, then-Glovers’ manager Russell Slade and Mr Rodgers’ agent Mark Cartwright negotiated an early release from his Valiants contract.

The former Shrewsbury Town and Crewe Alexandra front man moved to Huish Park permanently in January, agreeing a deal until the end of the season.

Under new manager Terry Skiverton, Rodgers has found first team opportunities limited, but scored in this month’s 2-2 draw with Hereford United.
