Štolcers started his career in his home-land Latvia, playing for Olimpija Rīga. He played there for two years from 1992 to 1994, making 53 league appearances and scoring 22 goals. In 1996, he was taken to Skonto Riga, where he showed his high scoring ability, scoring 15 goals in 1 season.
In 1997, he started his career abroad, joining the Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk, where he spent 3 years, playing 48 matches and scoring 14 goals. In July 2000, he left and joined yet another big club – this time the Russian team Spartak Moscow. He quickly scored 5 goals in 12 games and in December of the same year was signed by the English club Fulham. Štolcers joined Fulham when they were still in the second tier of English football. However, Fulham's victorious 2000-01 Division One campaign in his first season at the club got them promoted to the Premier League, and Štolcers scored two goals in the process against West Bromwich Albion (on his debut) and Watford. These were his only two league goals for the club, and he failed to score in the Premier League, making just 10 appearances over 3 full seasons at the top level. He did however manage to score twice in a League Cup tie against Bury in November 2002. In 2004, he joined Yeovil Town, playing 36 league matches and scoring 7 goals in all competitions. In 2005, he left England and signed a contract in Azerbaijan with FK Baku. He only played 10 games for them and scored 4 goals.
In 2006, he returned to his native Latvia, signing a contract with his former club Skonto Riga. In the upcoming season he scored 3 goals in 16 matches for them and was released. In 2007, he joined JFK Olimps Rīga as the only experienced player in the team to help youngsters with their development. He played 22 matches and scored 5 goals from 2007 to 2009.
In 2009, he once again left Latvia, unsuccessfully trying to get into the Yeovil Town squad after being on trial, and later joining Bath City. He scored 1 goal in 8 matches for them, and in 2010, Štolcers joined Hayes & Yeading United, where he retired from playing football with 1 goal in 9 matches in his final season.
His international debut for Latvia came in a 0–0 draw against Denmark on 26 August 1992. He has represented his country 81 times and scored seven goals. He played in the 2004 European Championships, held in Portugal.
After being released from Hayes and Yeading United on 7 May 2010, Štolcers started his coaching career. Currently he is the youth team coach at the Harris Academy South Norwood U15 in England and also takes part in an international project called Concept4Football, helping youngsters who are not older than 16 years develop their football abilities. He has also joined Carshalton Boys Sports college where he teaches P.E lessons. Andejs is now also involved with UK Football Finder.
On 29 May 2011, Štolcers took part in the London Legends Tournament held at the Craven Cottage. In the semi-final match against Chelsea legends, he scored a goal from the penalty spot, but that didn't save Fulham from losing 1–5.
