Andy Harrow was born in Kirkcaldy in 1956. He began his career with Cowdenbeath, signing from Junior club Greig Park Rangers in 1973. After four seasons at Cowdenbeath, he joined home town club Raith Rovers. After leaving Raith, he had a short spell with English club Luton Town, before Alex Ferguson signed him for Aberdeen in 1980. First team opportunities were limited for Harrow at Aberdeen, so he left Pittodrie to join Motherwell in 1982. After four years at Fir Park, he returned to Raith Rovers for two years, and ended his career in 1990 at East Fife.
