BIOGRAPHY
Andrew was a solidly-built utility who was fearless in his approach to the game. He originally started his league career in 1977 with Geelong, after being recruited from Echuca and spent five seasons there, playing in their 1980 and 1981 Reserves’ Premiership sides. He then crossed to Richmond for two years. He was unfortunately hampered by hamstring problems, and missed playing in the 1982 Grand Final for that reason. He was a fine contributor in the 1982 semi-final victory. After finishing his VFL career he returned to the country to coach Bunaloo. During his three seasons with Bunaloo he led them to two Premierships. Andrew is a farmer and now lives at Moama.
