Andrew John Pugh (born 28 January 1989) is an English professional footballer who plays as a striker for Dartford.

Career[edit]

Pugh signed scholarship forms with Gillingham in 2005 and made his debut as a substitute in a home defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion on 20 February 2007.[2] It was announced on 8 May 2007 that Pugh had signed his first professional contract, a one-year deal with option of another year. In October 2007 he joined Welling United on a one-month loan deal.[3] On 15 February, Pugh joined Maidstone United on a month's loan.

In August 2008, Pugh joined Folkestone Invicta on a one-month loan deal to gain first-team experience,[4] and had another loan spell later the same season at Grays Athletic.[5] Pugh made his debut for Grays starting in the 1–1 home draw against Weymouth.[6] His loan spell at Grays was extended until the end of the 2008–09 season, despite Gillingham manager Mark Stimson's wishes to recall him.[7][8] Pugh was sent-off in Grays' 2–1 away defeat on 13 April, ruling him out of the last three games of the Conference National season.[9]

In September 2009, Pugh joined Dover Athletic on a month's loan after Andy Hessenthaler's side were hampered by injuries.[10] Pugh scored a debut goal for Dover in a 4–2 victory over Hampton & Richmond Borough. Welling United re-signed Pugh on a one-month loan deal in November.[11] In March 2010, Pugh joined Conference National side Histon on loan for a month.[12] His contract at Gillingham finished at the end of that season, and was not renewed. After his Gillingham contract finished Pugh, along with Luis Cumbers, signed for Welling.[13]

On 25 January 2012, Pugh signed for Cambridge United on a two and a half-year contract for a fee of £15,000. The transfer was protracted throughout the January transfer window as Pugh was unable to take a medical at the due to a knee injury.[14] On 9 January 2014, Pugh had signed a one-month loan deal to join Dartford alongside fellow Cambridge United player Rory McAuley.[15] He was recalled back to the Abbey Stadium on 14 February 2014, ready to take part in the club's FA Trophy semi-final against Grimsby Town. Pugh was released by Cambridge on 27 May 2014.
