He had spell as a regular in the Carlisle side at right-back, before losing his place. He joined Rochdale on loan in February 2003,[2] before returning to Carlisle and regaining his place in the first team, signing a new two-year contract in May 2004.[3] After playing in a Carlisle side relegated to and promoted from the Football Conference, Andrews joined York City on loan in November 2005[4] and as Carlisle successfully battled for a second successive promotion, moved to Torquay United, struggling at the opposite end of the table on loan in March 2006.[5]

He was an ever-present for Torquay in the 2006-07 season, which ended with Torquay's relegation to the Conference National. Although offered a new contract with Torquay at the end of the season, he chose to return to the North of England.
