Cecil James "Archie" Andrews[1] (1 November 1930 – July 1986), was an English footballer who played as a wing half in the Football League for Crystal Palace and Queens Park Rangers. He also played non-league football for Sittingbourne.

Playing career[edit]

Andrews began his career with Porstmouth but did not make a League appearance for the club before signing for Crystal Palace in June 1952.[2] He made his debut on 7 September 1952 in an away 5–0 defeat to Bristol City.[3] He kept his place for the following game but did not appear again until February 1953.[3] He went on to make a total of 104 League appearances for Palace, over four seasons, scoring 11 goals.[4]

In June 1956,[2] Andrews moved on to Queens Park Rangers, for whom he made a total of 58 League appearances, over the next two seasons (scoring once), before moving into non-league football with Sittingbourne.

Andrews was nicknamed "Archie" after the comic book character of the period.[1]

Cecil Andrews died in July 1986 aged 55.[1]
