Andrew Crook

Norwich Career:  Schoolboy (1993-96)
Current Club:
Date of Birth:  
Nationality: English


According to his profile on the Global Soccer Network website, Andrew is a former schoolboy with the Canaries who played with them from the age of 13 (1993) until he was 16. During this time, he played for Norwich in the Northern Ireland Milk Cup and the Sunderland Festival. He also attended the FA Centre of Excellence and represented Norfolk at every level. After being released by Norwich, he joined the Kings Lynn youth side where he won the county cup. He was also invited for trials with the England Schools Under 19 side. His personal view of his strengths and weaknesses is as follows:

I am a fit, strong running athlete of medium build. I feel that stamina and speed off the mark are key assets of a good player, and therefore put an emphasis on sprints mixed with longer runs in training. I spend some time in the gym, as physical strength is a key advantage, but perhaps pay closer attention to improving ball skills and striking the ball in terms of crossing and shooting. This is the case as I feel that general ball skills and first touch are skills that many English players lack, or overlook, perhaps concentrating too heavily on strength.

Andrew joined the Global Soccer Network in search of an American college for whom he would gain a soccer scholarship.
