Career[edit]

After spending time with Kirkintilloch Rob Roy and Stenhousemuir, Anderson moved to Hamilton Academical in June 2011.[1][2] Anderson debuted for the Accies on 23 July 2011 in the Scottish Challenge Cup,[3] before making his SFL debut for the club a fortnight later.[4] In March 2012, Anderson was sent out on loan to Stenhousemuir, alongside Kieran Millar.[5] In May 2012, Anderson was released by the Lanarkshire club, after his return from a loan spell in Larbert.[6]

In June 2012, Anderson joined Raith Rovers.[7] After four seasons at Stark's Park, Anderson signed for fellow Scottish Championship club Queen of the South on a one-year contract on 14 June 2016.[8] On 20 January 2017 and after only half a season, Anderson departed Queens by mutual consent,[9] subsequently signing for Scottish League One club Peterhead until the end of the 2016–17 season.[10][11] He was released at the end of the season following the club's relegation to Scottish League Two.[12] After leaving Peterhead, Anderson moved to the opposite side of the country, signing for Scottish League One club Stranraer on 15 June 2017.[13]
