Andrew "Andie" Newton (born 1896; date of death unknown) was an English footballer who played at left-half for Newton Heath, Manchester City, Port Vale, and numerous other non-league clubs.

Playing career[edit]

Newton played for Romiley St. Chad's, Park Albion, Marple Amateurs, Newton Heath, and Hyde United.[1] He played two league games for Manchester City in 1919. He guested for Burnley and then Port Vale in April 1919, before joining the latter club permanently.[1] In October 1919, Port Vale were re-elected from the Central League to the Football League.[1] Newton and Tom Holford battled for the position on the left of midfield, but by February 1920, Holford had established himself as the club's preferred left-half.[1] Newton featured in 14 Second Division games in 1919–20, but never played a game in 1920–21.[1] He was allowed to leave The Old Recreation Ground in May 1921 and returned to Hyde United; he later played for Ashton National Gas.[1]
