Dubs man Andrews switches to soccer

Updated: August 17, 2011

Dublin GAA player Paddy Andrews has made the switch to soccer after joining Airtricty First Division side Monaghan United for the remainder of the season.

Andrews fell out of favour with Pat Gilroy this year and has played only a few league matches since featuring more regularly in the panel that won the 2009 Leinster Championship.

Mons’ manager Roddy Collins made the signing as he hopes to push for promotion to the premiership in his first year in charge, they currently sit third just on point behind Cork City.

Paddy is the younger brother of former Dublin star Peadar Andrews and made his reputation in the sport with St Brigid’s before winning the Sigerson Cup with DCU last year.

Andrews joins a line of Dublin players in recent years who have played in both disciplines such as Jason Sherlock and current goalkeeper Stephen Cluxton who was on the books of St Patrick’s Athletic at the beginning of his career.
