An attacker by trade, Andronicos Georgiou first came onto Boro’s books as a 13-year-old – and made his first team bow aged 17. By this point, you could already consider the forward to be a veteran based on how long he had been with us. In fact, the London-born player of Cypriot descent had been with us for five years by the time he broke into the first team squad during the 2017-8 campaign. He turned pro in April 2017; making a real impression at each age level he has played in at the Lamex.
One highlight in his fledgling Boro’ career was his hattrick at Biggleswade Town in a summer 2017 pre-season friendly. It was the first three of many goals we’d hoped to see from him in the red and white. But the forward’s time hadn’t quite come during the 2018-9 season. Still, he did go out on loan to Kings Langley to continue his development there; gaining plenty of first-team action under his belt in the process. And, in keeping him on for the 2019-20 campaign, manager Dino Maamria clearly still had high hopes for him.
Andronicos Georgiou: After Boro’
Things, however, didn’t go to plan for either us or the player that season. As we floundered at the wrong end of the League Two table, Georgiou found himself out on loan again. Any hopes of breaking into the first team reckoning were curtailed by the coronavirus pandemic. Boro’ opted to release the player in summer 2020; a move that looked questionable when Wycombe Wanderers snapped him up – albeit for their ‘B’ team at that time. But that only lasted until the end of the 2020-1 campaign; Georgiou leaving the club in summer 2021.
In the years since, the forward turned out for Haringey Borough and Kings Langley – one of his former loan clubs from his time with us. In summer 2023, yet another of his former loan clubs would come in for him; St Albans City confirming his arrival for the 2023-4 campaign.
