Defender Danny Andrew spoke to the media for the first time since making his 100th league appearance against Cheltenham Town on Saturday.
Andrew has been a constant in the side since re-joining the Cods back in the summer of 2019 and has become a fans favourite in that time as well, with the response to reaching his latest milestone being outstanding from the Cod Army.
Here’s what he had to say:
On his recent milestone…
“It’s nice to reach that milestone, considering we worked out that I played around 18 games in my first two years here, and have since made up the gap to 100 in just a couple of seasons after – it’s a proud achievement.
“When I first arrived at Fleetwood, it was a bit step up for me as I arrived from the Conference and I think, unfortunately, that reflected in the injuries I picked up in my first stint where I ended up playing so few games.
“Coming back the second time, I had League One experience with Doncaster [Rovers] and due to me being able to stay fit, I feel like I am a real part of the football club.
"As you get older, you naturally have an influence over the younger players like Shayden [Morris] and you feel a duty to help them through the mistakes you’ve made.”
On his favourite memories…
“It’s tough to think of one thing, especially when I haven’t scored that many, but to be fair, I’ve scored a few screamers in my time! I would have to say Peterborough in the first game of the season two years ago was one to remember.
“Peterborough away will always be a good memory for me. They were up there and were one of the favourites for the division and we went down there and scored three, with me scoring a free-kick from about 30-yards. It’s near where I’m from and a lot of my friends and family were there – was a good memory for me.”
