Rob Kelly has moved to bolster his attacking options with the signing of experienced front man Calvin Andrew on a free transfer.

The 34-year-old striker was a free agent following his summer release from Rochdale where he had made 231 appearances and scored 28 goals over a six-year period.

Andrew came through the ranks at Luton Town where he turned professional in September 2004, making his senior debut for The Hatters just days later in an EFL Trophy game.

Further First Team experience followed with loan spells at Grimsby Town and Bristol City before he earned a move to Crystal Palace in 2008 when they agreed to pay a reported fee of £80,000.

He played over 50 times for The Eagles and also enjoyed several loan moves before joining Port Vale on a permanent deal in the summer of 2012.

Andrew spent time with Mansfield Town and York City before putting down roots at Rochdale in 2014, where he became an asset on an off the pitch, scooping the prestigious League One Community Player of the Year in 2019/20.

He arrives at The Progression Solicitors Stadium with over 450 senior outings under his belt and will offer valuable competition and experience to The Bluebirds squad during the run-in.

Andrew, who has signed a deal until the end of the season, has been handed squad number 39 and is named on the substitutes' bench for this evening's game against Grimsby Town.
