A little about Tony and his history with Holyport FC....
Tony Andrews was born in January 1947, at 16 years of age Tony first played for Holyport. Tony attracted attention from Newcastle and Millwall and was asked for club trials, 1 week before his trial he broke his leg playing for Holyport and it took 9 months before he would wear the club shirt again.
After numerous years of playing the chairman at the time asked Tony to join the board, he could see Tony was a committed individual and wanted him onboard. Unfortunately after not seeing eye to eye with the board Tony decided to leave the club, but after one season the chairman asked him back to help run the club alongside him.
The club had some ups and downs but the club begun to progress, ironically having a barbers shop in Maidenhead helped to make contact with all the local footballers and this paid dividends as the club went on to success after success.
Off the field Tony has done every job you can imagine, cleaned the toilets, swept the floors, cleaned the kit and to this day runs the tea bar on match days as well as collecting the corner flags! But as Tony always states you do anything for the club you love.
Tony passed on his love for the club to his son Tony, who at 49 years of age is groundsman and has also played for the club since 16 years of age. So between the two there is over 80 years of service.
Tony is a very humble man and will always say that is not about one individual but about the club!
