However, he failed to make the step up and after just five starts and a single goal was released in May 2003.

In the space of 12 months left-sided midfielder Andy went from Southern League Western Division football with Paulton Rovers to League 2 side Bristol Rovers, via a season spent with City. A transfer fee of £1500 brought him to Twerton Park, having begun as a trainee with Bristol City plus spells with Hellenic League Malmesbury and Western League Melksham Town. The 21-year old immediately showed his abilities and only an ankle injury prevented a move to Swansea City at the start of 2006. It was, therefore, no surprise when Rovers made a move for him in May. However, he failed to cement a regular starting place with the Pirates and joined Salisbury City, initially on loan, in August 2007. The Wiltshire club's financial problems saw him move on to Aldershot Town in January 2009.
