Biography

A product of the youth system at Sunderland, Andrew made two appearances for Sunderland U23s in the EFL Trophy, before making his league debut during a loan spell to Hartlepool United in February 2017.

The striker took in further loan spells at Harrogate Town, Falkirk, and Darlington, scoring six goals in five appearances for the latter.

In January 2019, Andrew signed for Dundee from Sunderland for an undisclosed fee, scoring on his debut for the club against Hearts in a 2-1 victory for the Dees. The Englishman scored a further three league goals, however it was not enough to save Dundee from relegation to the Championship.

The following season, Andrew scored a double in a 3-0 victory over Raith Rovers in the League Cup group stage, and followed this up with strikes against Ayr and Dundee United in the early weeks of the season.

After the season was ended early due to COVID, Andrew left the club in July 2020 and signed for Torquay United.

Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Andrew was born on this date in Stockton-on-Tees.

  • Signed For Dundee

    A product of the youth system at Sunderland, Andrew made two appearances for Sunderland U23s in the EFL Trophy, before making his league debut during a loan spell to Hartlepool United in February 2017.

  • First Goal - Hearts 1 - 2 Dundee

  • Dundee crashed to a 6-2 defeat at Tannadice Park in the first derby of the season. Calum Butcher put Dundee United ahead only for Kane Hemmings to equalise quickly. In a nightmare seven minute spell late in the first half United ran in three goals from Louis Appéré, a Lawrence Shankland penalty and Butcher again. Ian Harkes added a fifth at the start of the second half. Andrew Nelson came off the bench to pull a goal back, but Cammy Smith completed the scoring with a late goal.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee 2 - 0 Ayr Utd

    Dundee completed the two match head to head against Ayr United with a fine 2-0 win at the Kilmac Stadium at Dens Park. Kane Hemmings gave the Dark Blues an early lead and Oliver Crankshaw came off the bench to secure the points with his first goal for the club. The visitors had chances in the first half but after the interval Dundee controlled the game. All the second half excitement was in Ayr’s penalty area but the Dee had to wait until injury time for the second goal.
