Andrew McInnes (born 20 March 1992)[1] is an Australian rules footballer in the Australian Football League.

Background[edit]

McInnes plays primarily as a defender. Originally from Victoria, McInnes played junior football for the Devon Meadows Football Club in Casey-Cardinia, and played TAC Cup football for the Dandenong Stingrays. He represented Vic Country at the 2010 AFL Under 18 Championships.[1]

McInnes was recruited by the Carlton Football Club with a fourth round selection in the 2010 AFL National Draft (No. 67 overall). He was given guernsey number 26.[1] He played the entire 2011 season and the first half of the 2012 season with Carlton's VFL-affiliate, the Northern Bullants (known as the Blues from 2012), before making his AFL debut in Round 15, 2012 against Collingwood.[2] He held his place in the team for the next two months, impressing with reliable performances in the backline, before suffering an ACL injury in his eighth game.[3]

He returned in mid-2013, and played another eight games during the season, including both of Carlton's finals. McInnes was delisted at the end of the 2014 season after managing only a single senior game during the year.[4]

In 2015, McInnes played for Norwood in the South Australian National Football League.[5] In 2016, he returned to Victoria and played for VFL club Frankston.[6]
