Biographical Text

Andy Llewellyn, who made over 300 league appearances for Bristol City, spent three months on loan with Exeter City in 1994 shortly before he left Ashton Gate. He later played a handful of games for Hereford United. 

Andy, an England youth international, commenced his career with Bristol City as an apprentice in 1982 and signed as a full professional in February 1984 having already made his league debut at Rochdale in December 1982. Eventually establishing himself as a regular, Andy went on to make 308 league appearances for the Robins scoring three goals. He was a member of Bristol City's promotion-winning side in 1990 and played in the Football League Trophy win in 1987 in addition to winning the club’s player of the year award in 1991.

Arriving on loan at St James’ Park by Exeter City in March 1994, and well-known to manager Terry Cooper who had recently returned to the club, the 28-year-old Andy was effectively seeking a new club as his Ashton Gate career was coming to an end. Making his Grecians’ debut at Wrexham on 12 March 1994, Andy was to play in 15 consecutive games in an Exeter side that had struggled all season.

Andy was soon released by Bristol City and signed for Hereford United on non-contract forms in October 1994 where he appeared just four times. Moving on to Yeovil Town, Andy’s Football League career was over surprisingly early as he remained in non-league with Bishop Sutton and Weston-Super-Mare ahead of going into management with Weston St Johns and Portishead Town. He was later jailed for conspiracy to burgle.

Andy’s sons, Jake and Tom, became non-league players with a number of clubs in the Bristol and Somerset area and, as of 2022/23, were playing together for Bridgwater United where Andy was to become assistant manager in August 2023 prior to taking on the manager's job in November 2023.
