Andy Hinchcliffe enjoyed a hugely successful playing career as a strong and skilful Left Back with Manchester City, Everton and Sheffield Wednesday and was known for his deadball accuracy and powerful left footed free kicks.

He won the 1995 FA Cup with Everton and played seven times for England, making his debut along with David Beckham in England's 3-0 away win against Moldova in 1996.
Since retiring from the game Andy has been very active in the media, hosting the "Total Football" show on Manchester radio station Key 103 (alongside fellow Football Aider Mickey Thomas) and writing a column for the Manchester City Official website.
Andy came onboard as an Ambassador in January 2006 and played and managed in our following two year's games at the City of Manchester Stadium, he has also helped us to recruit former teammates like Ian Brightwell and David White for our matches. Always a highly approachable and enthusiastic presence at our matches, his support was summed up in 2007 when his Goalkeeper for the match described him as "a true gentleman" and "a pleasure to play with".
