Andrew Alexander Milne (born 9 September 1990) is a former professional footballer who played for Leeds United, Darlington FC, Barrow FC and Altrincham FC. He is currently Head of the i2i International Soccer Academy, which is based in York, England.

Club career[edit]

Milne was born in York, North Yorkshire.[1] He joined Leeds United at the age of nine and went on to become Head Boy and Captain of the Under 18s. Around this time, he also obtained international caps for the Scotland under-18 & 19's team and broke into Gary McAllister’s Leeds United first team squad.[2]

Milne spent 10 years with the Leeds United's Academy system and was involved with the first team in the 2009 pre-season friendly matches.[3] On 26 November 2009, Milne signed for Darlington on loan for three months, at the same time as Chesterfield defender Danny Hall and midfielder Paul Harsley.[4] Milne made his debut in the Football League on 5 December 2009, playing the whole of the 1–0 home defeat against Bradford City, earning man of the match.[5] In his second game, a 5–0 defeat to Torquay United, he sustained an ankle injury and was replaced by midfielder Josh Gray.[6][7] He returned to Leeds to recover from his injury.

On 5 March 2010, Milne rejoined Darlington on loan until the end of the season under former Republic of Ireland Manager Steve Staunton.[8]

It was announced on 14 May 2010 that he would not be offered a new deal at Leeds and that he was free to find a new club.[9] He signed for Barrow AFC of the Conference National just two days before the start of the next season. During this season he was also loaned out to Gainsborough Trinity of the Conference North.

After impressing during his loan spell at Gainsborough, he joined Conference National side Altrincham F.C. on loan.[10][11]

In January 2011 he signed for FC Halifax Town on a deal until the end of the season.[12] Milne then moved onto Ossett Town and Scarborough Athletic, to enable him to concentrate on his education at York St John University.

In March 2012 he joined Altrincham.[13]

Milne joined Tadcaster Albion in 2014 [14][15] and was Players' and Supporters' Player of the Year 2014.[16]
