Wands announce Drury

Andy Drury moves in to be Assistant player/manager at Cray Wanderers

Cray Wanderers have announced that experienced former professional Andy Drury is to move up from Sittingbourne to take on the role of Player/Assistant to new manager Danny Kedwell.

Attacking midfielder Andy began his career with Sittingbourne back in 2001, when the Brickies were in the Dr Marten League. He went on to play 98 competitive games for Sittingbourne. He left Sittingbourne to go to Gravesend & Northfleet (now Ebbsfleet Utd), and he then moved on to Lewes who were then in the Conference South.

In 2008 he was part of the FA Trophy winning side at Stevenage, and whilst he was with Stevenage he had his first taste of the Football League when Stevenage were promoted from the Conference.

He then had his first spell at Luton Town before being spotted by Ipswich Town, who paid Luton £158,000 for him. Drury played 64 games for Ipswich and in 2013, after a loan spell at Crawley Town, he signed for the Sussex side. In 2014 he returned to Luton Town and a year later joined Eastleigh.

Staying in Hampshire he played for Havant & Waterlooville, before moving on to the Brickies once more last season, making eight appearances and scoring twice.
