Andrew was a rugged utility player who usually played in defence. He showed improvement in each season he played. Originally rejected by St.Kilda, English-born Andrew was a late starter to Australian Rules, preferring to play soccer as a junior. He played his early football with Wandin where he won the Competition Best and Fairest award after only four seasons. He was a very physical player who protected his teammates with very good use of his body, and his endeavor and desire could never be faulted. He spent five seasons at Richmond winning the Best First Year Player award in 1987.
He was drafted to Melbourne in March 1992, prompting his former coach Kevin BARTLETT to write an article in the Melbourne Herald Sun expressing how much his efforts at Richmond were recognised. After two years with Melbourne, Andrew moved to Tasmania where he has coached Devonport for the past three seasons. He has an outstanding 1994 season finishing second in the “Leitch Medal” for Best and Fairest in the competition. In 1995, he represented Tasmania against South Australia. Away from football, he is a plumber.
