Andy Quy had a short-lived spell at Boro’; a stay in which he’d warm the bench for one game and then never be seen here again. The goalkeeper was understudy to Des Gallagher for our 1997-8 campaign curtain-raiser away to Yeovil Town. But he didn’t get any game time and he was out the door almost as quickly as he came in. And it was an experience not unlike his fruitless time at Grimsby Town before us. Paul Fairclough was looking to rebuild our squad after the end of the 1996-7 campaign signalled the end of an era. Quy, however, wouldn’t be part of it.
Mind you, he couldn’t have gone too far in that early part of the 1997-8 campaign. After all, it seems that he was still on the books for us to loan him out to Kettering Town. Any further information on that just isn’t to hand.
Andy Quy: After Boro’
In search of regular football, Quy moved west after his time at Boro’; signing for a Hereford United side that were looking to return to the Football League after relegation that year. With the Bulls, the stopper found a home – and played numerous times over the following years. Unfortunately, injury then got in the way. He left Edgar Street to sign for Halesowen Town and then Belper Town. But his battle with injury wasn’t to be a successful one, with Quy forced to call it a day. Not that it ended his football involvement, however.
Quy moved into coaching; securing roles at Stoke City, Derby County, Aston Villa, and Brentford among others. In more recent times, he left a position at Burton Albion in October 2021 and moved to the USA; taking up a position on the coaching team at Charlotte FC.
