Andy began his career with Barnsley (36 appearances), Doncaster
Rovers (106 games) and Oldham Athletic. He came to Norwich in
March 1996 as cover for Andy Marshall following Bryan Gunn's broken ankle suffered at Nottingham Forest on
December 27th 1995. Rhodes made 8 appearances for the Reserves,
keeping two clean sheets in London at Wimbledon and at QPR. He
had also played on loan for Bolton in February 1995.
Andy later spent some time with Norwich's Suffolk rivals Ipswich
Town as their goalkeeping coach. In October 2004, injuries to
Ipswich reserve team keeper Shane Supple saw the club seek to
register Andy as a player for their clash on 23rd October. In
the end, they failed to do and entered the match with no substitute
keeper. Andy left Ipswich in the summer of 2008.
Previously to joining Ipswich, Andy was with Barnsley as their
goalkeeping coach. Prior to his return back to Oakwell in the
summer of 2000, he was playing for Emley Town of the Unibond Northern
League. Previously he was with GM Vauxhall Conference champions
Halifax Town whom he joined in March 1998. Before that he was
registered with Scottish First Division side Airdrie although
at the end of November 1997, he joined Division Three side Scarborough
on loan. He joined Airdrie from St Johnstone whom he had joined
on 31st May 1992 in an exchange deal worth £300,000. St
Johnstone were his second Scottish club having joined them from
Dunfermline whom he made 89 appearances since joining from Oldham
in July 1990 for £80,000. He made his debut for the Pars
in a 3-1 defeat to Rangers on 25th August 1990 and his final game
for them was against St Mirren on 25th May 1992, which the Pars
also lost 3-1.
Andy joined Preston as part of their backroom coaching team. In
January 2010, he joined Sheffield Wednesday as goalkeeping coach.
In June 2018 Rhodes joined Oldham as Assistant Manager to Frankie Bunn but Rhodes was sacked on 26th October 2018 with the Chairman citing financial reasons.
