Biographical Text

After well over 200 league and cup games for Rotherham United, and a season with Mansfield Town, Andy Roscoe was a regular Exeter City first-teamer in the three seasons leading up to relegation from the Football League. He left City to play for Leigh RMI.

A youth trainee with Liverpool, Andy moved on to Bolton Wanderers from where - after just three league appearances - he joined Rotherham United in October 1994. Quickly establishing himself at Millmoor, Andy made 202 league appearances, scoring 18 goals before leaving to sign for Mansfield Town in August 1999. Then, after playing 39 league games in his single season in Nottinghamshire, Andy - now aged twenty-seven - agreed terms with Exeter City in July 2000.

After making his debut against Cardiff City on 12 August 2000, Andy soon scored his first goal for the Grecians before tallying 47 league and cup appearances during his first campaign at St James’ Park. He then added 42 appearances in all competitions in 2001/02 when he scored on eight occasions ahead of playing 37 league and cup games during City’s fateful 2002/03 season which ended in relegation from the Football League. In what ultimately proved to be his final season with Exeter, Andy scored three times before making his last appearance against Oxford United on 19 April 2003.     

Released at the time of City’s relegation, Andy was briefly registered with Halifax Town before having four seasons at Leigh RMI where he was to become assistant-manager, He later played for nearby Atherton Laburnum Rovers.
