One of two brothers, who appeared in the Spurs side in the late 1980s, Andy Polston was a central defender who was able to also play in midfield, but made his name away from White Hart Lane.
Played for his local youth side Walthamstow Avenue Colts in the early 1980s.
Raised through the youth set-up at the club, Andy Polston was a solidly built defender who had a thunderous tackle and could pass the ball well out of defence. His rise to the first team came at a time when the team were not at their best and he was often in the match day group, but only made one appearance in the first XI.
His solitary appearance in the first team came in a First Division match at Crystal Palace, where he partnered his brother John with them becoming the first brothers to play in the Spurs first team since the Steel brothers in 1902.
Having failed to make the breakthrough at White Hart Lane on a regular basis, Andy moved on to Gillingham.
Later played for Cambridge United and Brighton & Hove Albion, before he dropped into non-league with a couple of seasons at Hendon and then six years at St. Albans City. A short spell at Boreham Wood preceded a move to Ford United, where he helped them gain promotion to the Ryman Premier Division.
Went into coaching with his move to Billericay Town in 2003, which he combined with playing, but due to work commitments, he had to relinquish that position in April 2004.
Has three daughters - Ellie, Megan and Grace.
Undertakes triathlons and has played in Masters football tournaments and for the Spurs Legends.
Runs two cleaning companies - A & J Cleaning Services and Monarch Cleaning Services.
