Andrews should be a motivator for the team. I am not sure if he is any good on the field at this level still because of that injury.

But he should be involved with the T&T team, a preacher, motivator, he can lift the team in many ways.

"John McGlynn was a happy man at full time with another Fife Derby victory under his belt and an “unbelievable” performance from ‘trialist’ Marvin Andrews along with Mark Campbell at the back, and a confidence boosting goal from Graham Weir, some of the positive points taken from the game."
"The big talking point prior to the match was the inclusion of Marvin Andrews in the Rovers starting line-up for the first time in over a year as a trialist. Not that you would have noticed had you not known, because the big man played as if he had never been away. His performance (and that of defensive partner Mark Campbell) was a major contribution to this victory.

A baller who played at Raith briefly - during Marvin's first stint at Raith - shared a story about going to the grocery (or some place similar) wid Dog, and all Dog buying iz ah set ah bananas and milk.

De baller: dahis all yuh eating/getting? ... Marvin: dahis all I need; I good.

Baller say Marvin was STRONG ... both physically and in belief/self-belief. Yuh could tell it was a pleasant memory, as the player (now retired) reflected.

De baller who was also at Hibs briefly during Latas' time ... jumped from a brief mention of Latas (said de stuff everyone who has seen him up close says about his technical ability), to the memory above.

Marvin: de fella ah talking bout is ah French-speaking fella from a lil island off de coast of Africa. Striker, later converted to a back elsewhere. :beermug:

Edit: might ah been water instead of milk  :-\.

Elgin City sign Marvin Andrews

Elgin City sign Marvin Andrews
By Craig Christie (The Northern Scot)


FORMER Rangers defender Marvin Andrews has completed his move to Elgin City on a one-year deal.

City boss Barry Wilson revealed how the 38-year-old agreed to sign a contract with the club after a successful three-match trial.

“It’s great news, having seen what he can bring to the team and the club,” Barry said. “The reaction that we’ve had from the fans and the players as well has been great.”

Andrews, who was capped 101 times by Trinidad and Tobago, had been reluctant to commit his future to Elgin due to the amount of travel involved from his Kirkcaldy base.

However, he said he had been won over by the Moray club and its supporters during his three trial games.

“I’m coming to the end of my career but I’m still enjoying playing on a Saturday,” Marvin told the Northern Scot. “I’m just so happy that Barry has given me the opportunity to be here and show what I’m still capable of at the age of 38.

“It’s a very, very nice club with great supporters, and the team plays very attractive football.”

Andrews helped City beat East Fife and Clyde in their first two home games of their League 2 season, winning man of the match awards in both 1-0 successes.

He also scored in the 2-1 away defeat at East Stirling.

“Two awards and scoring a goal means I couldn’t have had a better three trial games. I hope I’ve impressed the manager.”
