Andrew "Andy" Garner (born 8 March 1966) is an English retired professional footballer.
In August 1988, Garner joined Sam Ellis's Blackpool for £75,000. He made his debut on opening day, 27 August, in a 1–1 draw at Chester City. Jimmy Mullen took over the manager's seat for 1989–90 and moved Garner into a central-midfield position, where he went on to enjoy more success in a partnership with Paul Groves, although he couldn't help the Seasiders avoid relegation to the Football League's basement division.
After Blackpool's failure in the Fourth Division playoff final of 1990–91, Garner was the subject of intense transfer speculation, and it seemed almost certain that he would leave for pastures new. However, the proposed move fell through and he remained at the club for another season, which saw another Wembley playoff final, this time ending in success for Blackpool.
Blackpool F.C. Hall of Fame
Garner was inducted into the Hall of Fame at Bloomfield Road, when it was officially opened by former Blackpool player Jimmy Armfield in April 2006. Organised by the Blackpool Supporters Association, Blackpool fans around the world voted on their all-time heroes. Five players from each decade are inducted; Garner is in the 1980s.
Garner is now a football coach. He has been the first-team coach at his first club, Derby County.
After mixed results at Sheffield United, Garner would once again follow Nigel Clough and return to previous club Burton Albion in 2015 in a coaching role. Subsequently, Burton Albion have achieved promotion to the Championship for the first time in their history.
