Andy Marshall is an English goalkeeper. He was born on 14 April 1975 in Bury St. Edmunds, England.
In 1994 Andy was offered to join the main team of Norwich City. The footballer liked the terms of the contract and the prospects in the club and accepted the offer, penning a deal with ‘The Canaries’. During two years after the signing, the keeper made occasional appearances on the pitch and trained with the full squad, but the place of a regular was occupied and that is why the loaning practice was the optimal option for Marshall.
In January 1996, Andy went to Bournemouth, where he featured in 11 games during the second half of the 1995/1996 season. In the summer 1996, the footballer sealed a season-long loan deal with Gillingham and made five appearances for the temporary club.
After the end of his spell, the footballer returned to his parent Norwich City and became the pivot of the team. His talent and potential helped him to make a qualitative leap, which earned him the place of a first-choice keeper. From 1994 till 2001, excluding one year and a half on loan, Marshall took part in 195 games for ‘The Canaries’.
In the summer 2001, Andy finalized a move to Ipswich Town, where he featured in 53 matches during two seasons. In 2003 English side Wolverhampton tied up a loan deal with the goalkeeper, but failed to give him playing time. In January 2004, the footballer was sent on loan to Millwall and made seven appearances for the temporary club till the summer the same year.
In the summer 2004, Millwall decided to secure Marshall’s services on permanent basis. During two years of his performance for the team, Andy managed to become the anchor player at the position of a first-choice goalkeeper and took part in 60 matches. In 2006 the footballer transferred to Coventry City, where he took the place between the posts in 59 fixtures.
In 2009 the footballer ended his Coventry City spell with Aston Villa move. Marshall was a second-choice goalkeeper of the ‘Villans’ and did no manage to make a single appearance for the club. In 2013 he was released at the age of 38. In the month of August Millwall called him out of retirement as a replacement for injured keeper David Forde.
