Signed from Reading for 500,000 in July 2005, Andy is a real team player whose non-stop running and enthusiasm sets a real example for his team-mates. He has the ability to fulfil a number of roles for his team, but arguably enjoyed his best games for Norwich when playing as the most forward of a five man midfield, working hard to join the lone front man, especially when this system was employed away from home. Was asked to captain the team on several occasions last season and responded with typically robust and driving performances. His ability to close opponents down, make tackles and get his team moving forward did not always catch the eye, but his effectiveness was never in question as, when fit, he was always part of Nigel Worthington's plans.
