Andrew James Russell is a football (soccer) player currently playing for South China AA. He previously played for AFC Fylde.


Andy Russell was born on the South Coast of England but moved to Hong Kong with his parents when he was only 18 months old. He lived in Hong Kong until he went to University in Manchester, England.

In 2008 he signed his first contract as a professional footballer for Happy Valley AA, which played in Hong Kong’s First Division. After returning to the UK, Russell joined Mossley in the NPL First Division North and found employment with sportswear giants Adidas. He joined Chorley in 2010 when manager Garry Flitcroft took over. For the 2013-14 season, Russell chose AFC Fylde after being convinced by manager Dave Challinor. He helped the club retain the Lancashire FA Challenge Trophy by beating Chorley 4-1 with one goal and one assist.

In July 2014, Andy announced on his twitter account that he has signed for South China AA for the 2014-15 Hong Kong Premier League season. Coach Yeung Ching Kwong claims they need him because the club needs more local players for the 2015 AFC Cup.
