Andrews played all of the 2016 and part of the 2015 season with Energy FC. In total, he has appeared in 43 games, starting 41 of them, with Energy FC. During 2016, he was part of the a defensive unit that allowed only 30 goals on the season, the third stingiest defense in the USL’s Western Conference.
“We are happy to have Coady Andrews back with our club as he has been a big part of our success the last two seasons,” said head coach Jimmy Nielsen. “We’ve also noticed over that time that he’s been willing to take on a leadership role with the club. In addition to his play on the field, he has become a member of the soccer community in Oklahoma City by coaching and training young soccer players.”
“I believe that with the direction Jimmy is leading the team, we’re in a position to win a championship,” said Andrews. “The roots and the relationships I’ve built within the community drives me to want to succeed here.”
Coady joins forward Danni Konig as players signed for the 2017 season. Expect more announcements in the coming weeks as Energy FC fills out its roster.
