Energy FC defender Coady Andrews announced his retirement from professional soccer today.
Andrews played four seasons with Energy FC and leaves the club ranked second in minutes played with 6,138 and third in games played with 74. He scored two regular season goals and one playoff tally with the club. His playoff goal was a header against LA Galaxy II in the 2015 Western Conference Finals.
“It's been a true honor and privilege to represent this club and city. There are so many people to thank in regards to my progression as a player and I'll reach out to you all personally,” said Andrews. “Publicly, I would like to give a special thanks to the fans of OKC Energy FC and the ownership group who's unwavering support has allowed me to have played the game for as long as I have.”
Andrews continued, “As my wife and I build the next chapter of our life we couldn't think of a better place to do it than Oklahoma City. It's a true testament to the people of Oklahoma City. Before I was a player I was a fan, and I'm sincerely looking forward to being in the stands supporting our boys on field.”
“Coady has shown over several seasons that he is a dedicated and hard-working professional athlete who has given a great deal of time and effort to Energy FC and the Oklahoma City community,” said Head Coach Steve Cooke. “We thank Coady for his excellent contributions and wish him the very best as he embarks on the next phase of his life.”
Coady is active the Oklahoma City youth soccer community. Energy FC will honor Coady and his accomplishments with the club in a ceremony at the team's final regular season home match on Sunday, September 23.
