Full Name: Andy Reid
Normal Position: Data Not Complete
Born: 04/07/1962(Urmston)
Died: 27/10/2017

Played 109 times scoring 3 goals. Brother of Manchester City’s Nicky Reid, Andy was an uncompromising “all action” type of player.

Able to play at the back or in midfield, his best position was undoubtedly centre-back. He started his footballing career as a junior at Everton but was not offered a professional contract. He moved on to Witton Albion, before joining Southport and then Runcorn before moving to Altrincham for the 89/90 season. He played a big part in Altrincham’s attempt at the league title. After three seasons at Altrincham he joined Bury as part of a £10,000 deal that saw him and Nicky Daws join Bury. He played 33 games and scored once during his spell at Gigg Lane before moving back to Altrincham. Unfairly called in some quarters as “dirty” he was really just very committed, though to be fair he did miss a number of games each season due to suspension! Despite his reputation he was considered good enough to be selected for an England semi-professional cap (March 1995). In his second spell at Altrincham his highpoint came, the FA Cup tie at Spurs when he was up against Klinsmann and Sheringham. The low point was probably Andy’s foul throw in the same game that resulted in a goal being disallowed.

Andy was the sort of player who played wherever he was asked without complaint and with 100% commitment. It was this commitment that made him a favourite on the terraces but it also led to a number of injuries, which probably shortened his career. On leaving Altrincham, Andy joined Hyde United.
