Biography:
A big central defender, Kris Lindsay made his firstteam debut for Portadown just days after his sixteenth birthday in a Mid Ulster Cup game against Armagh City in February 2000. He had to wait over a year for his first Irish League appearance as he came on as a substitute in a 3-3 derby game against Glenavon in May 2001.

A regular in the Northern Ireland Under-19 then Under-21 squads throughout his time at Shamrock Park, Lindsay never established himself in the Ports' first eleven and he left for Larne in search of regular football. At Inver Park he developed quickly, his maturity earning him the club captaincy and, after several years on the fringe of the squad, an Under-21 cap during a tour of Israel.

In the summer of 2006 Lindsay was hot property and it seemed he would return to Portadown as Ronnie McFall tried to rectify his earlier mistake. Instead, Lindsay joined Linfield where he had to serve a lengthy apprenticeship with the Swifts. He has also suffered with injuries since arriving at Windsor Park, but was included in David Jeffrey's Under-23 squad for Northern Ireland's entry into the inaugural International Challenge Trophy.

Lindsay joined Glenavon on loan in January 2011 as he attempted to prove his fitness. Unable to convince Linfield of his fitness, he made the Glenavon move permanent that summer.
