Biography:
Andy Morrow rose through the youth ranks at Northampton Town and he broke into the firstteam under then Cobblers manager, Kevin Wilson. Morrow's debut came as a substitute against Torquay in October 1999 and he was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet as he put a shot inches wide. A regular for Northern Ireland Under-18 level throughout his time at Sixfields, Morrow stepped-up to the Under-21 squad in 2000 and made his only appearance as a substitute in a 3-0 European Championship qualifying defeat by Denmark at the Oval.

Through the 2000/01 season Morrow continued as a regular goalscorer for Northampton's reserve team, but was unable to make the hoped for impact in the Second Division. His contract was not renewed in the summer of 2001 and he joined Irish Premier Division side, Newry Town on a short-term contract. There then followed a short stay at Ards before he was signed by Lee Doherty for his hometown side, Bangor.

With the Seasiders Morrow often played in midfield, but it is as a striker that he continues to shine as one of the most highly rated players outside the the IFA Premiership. He has aided Bangor to the major intermediate honours and showed he had the ability to play in the topflight during the club's one-season return in 2008/09. Morrow's name has been linked with a move to several Premiership sides, but he has remained loyal to Bangor where he is club captain and has now scored over one hundred goals and played well over 300 games.
