Andy is a 21-year-old who signed his first professional contract with the club after impressing in the youth team in recent seasons.

He made his debut for Dale as a half-time substitute in the 3-2 win at Leyton Orient at the end of September 2014, before getting his first start against Walsall in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

An injury to Joe Rafferty saw Andy make the right-back slot his own from early March and his performances were so impressive that he has now extended his contract until 2017. This deal has since been extended by a further 12 months.

Sometimes used more in an attacking midfield role, Andy scored his first goal for Dale in the 3-2 home loss to Peterborough on the opening day of this season.
