Assistant Head Coach, Andy Taylor has today left AFC Fylde to pursue a career in Youth Development.

Andy, a former Blackburn Rovers & Blackpool defender, became an instant hit with Fylde supporters and staff after arriving at Mill Farm from Oldham Athletic in 2019.

However, his Coasters career was brought to an untimely end after suffering a nasty ACL injury against Notts County in 2020, which led to him later accepting a coaching role at Mill Farm.

Andy has been a key and highly respected figure in the Coasters dugout in recent years and moved into the Assistant Head Coach role ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

Phil Humphreys, Executive Vice Chairman commented:

“I know that everyone connected with the football club, including our supporters, would like to express their thanks and appreciation for everything that Andy’s done during his time at AFC Fylde; and we offer our sincere best wishes to him for the next phase of his career in football.”
