Gone but not forgotten:
Andy Johnson
Position: Striker
From: Youth team
Record: Played: 0 Scored: 0
To: ??? - contract terminated - September 1997
Career stats: Soccerbase
He was: Chris' brother

Definitely always the second of the Johnson twins, Andy never made an appearance for the first team before being dismissed by the club along with his brother in his first professional year - the ins and outs of their eventual departure are discussed in a little more detail in Chris' profile.

Bearing in mind that I can only have seen Andy Johnson play two or three times (it's always rather difficult to remember individuals from junior and reserve games - matches between twenty-two players you don't know from Pele), it's slightly odd that I saw him score a hat-trick. It was for the reserves in a pre-season friendly against Northwood. Wow.

Whereas Chris Johnson had reached the stage where it was clear that his downfall represented a significant loss for the club, most people seemed unable to be so conclusive about Andy. We'll probably never know...
