Andrew Mark Bond (born 16 March 1986) is an English footballer who plays as a midfielder for Crawley Town. He has represented England at semi-professional level.[3]

Career[edit]

Crewe Alexandra[edit]

Born in Wigan, Greater Manchester, Bond began his career at Wigan junior Latics. Winning the league at under 10s, 11s and the league and cup double at u12's level. Prior to his league and cup double he was a Pontins national cup winner at u11's beating Oxford Grove in the final on penalties thanks to a standard Paul Harrison penalty save in the shootout. During this tournament Bond was central to the contreversy of 'who took a dump in volunteer match official John Gardners Dorm toilet. Eventually Bond, John Leggit and Geoff Hitchen were charged with the offence but all three were acquitted at trial. Paul Harrisonalso suspected of this vile act was not even taken to trial after claiming he was watching Quincy at the time. At under 12's level new manager Dave Harrison deployed Bond alongside the stalwart Christopher Travis at centre half where he was noticed by a Crewe Alexandra scout following a battling 2-2 display at Leigh RMI. Bond spent a few years at [Crewe Alexandra F.C.|Crewe Alexandra]] but despite being a regular for the reserves never made a first team appearance.[4] He was loaned out to lower league Lancaster City during the 2005–06 season, where he made 24 appearances and scored 4 goals.[5]

Barrow[edit]

Bond joined Conference North side Barrow in 2006 after being released by Crewe. He impressed at Barrow and had a successful spell, helping the club achieve promotion to the Conference Premier through the play-offs in the 2007–08 season.[6] In the 2009–10 season Bond was a key player in Barrow's progression to the third round of the FA Cup, where they lost 3–0 to Sunderland and in their victorious FA Trophy campaign. During this season Bond reportedly attracted the attention of several Championship clubs, including Leicester, Peterborough and Preston North End.[6]

Bond once again played for Barrow as a trialist against a Leeds United XI in a pre season friendly on 1 August 2015 following his release from Stevenage.

Colchester United[edit]

With his contract set to expire at the end of the 2009–10 season Bond opted to move on from Barrow. Although linked with a move to League One side Carlisle it was eventually announced that he had moved to their divisional rivals Colchester United. He was new manager John Ward's first signing.[7] Ward described him as "a marauding midfield player with a lot of energy and running work in him."[7] He made his Football League debut on 7 August 2010 in a 2–2 draw against Exeter City.[8] On 26 July 2011, Bond was involved in a nasty clash of heads with goalkeeper Mark Cousins during a friendly game against local rivals Ipswich Town. With medical treatment required at the stadium, the match was abandoned by the match officials, with Bond then taken straight to hospital. He was released from hospital the following day. He went on to make 43 appearances in the 2011–12 season.[9] On 28 September 2012, Bond joined his former club Crewe Alexandra on a one-month loan deal.[10]

Bond scored an 88th-minute winner in the opening match of the 2013–14 season after coming on as a substitute, linking up with Drey Wright to secure a 1–0 victory over Gillingham at Priestfield.[11] On 12 September 2013, he was loaned to Bristol Rovers on an initial one-month loan, linking up with former manager John Ward.[12] He made his debut on 14 September in a 2–0 away defeat to Dagenham & Redbridge.[13]

Bond parted company with the U's on 8 January 2014 after three-and-a-half years with the club. His contract was terminated by mutual consent after making more than 100 appearances for the club.[14]

Chester[edit]

Following his release from Colchester, Bond joined struggling Conference Premier side Chester on 23 January 2014, becoming the first signing for new manager Steve Burr, having reportedly turned down offers from Football League clubs in order to join the Blues.[15] He made his debut as a substitute in Chester's 3–0 away defeat to Forest Green Rovers on 25 January.[16]

Crawley Town[edit]

The midfielder joined the club on February 19, 2016 on a contract until the end of the season, and made his debut the following day in a 1-1 draw against Plymouth Argyle.
