Former Luton midfielder Andy Drury has been appointed assistant player-manager of Isthmian Premier Division club Cray Wanderers.

The 37-year-old was at Sittingbourne last term, but will now be number two to the Wands' new first team manager, ex-AFC Wimbledon striker Danny Kedwell, while continuing his 20-year playing career too.

Drury had started his career with Sittingbourne with spells at Gravesend & Northfleet, Lewes, Stevenage Borough and then joined Luton for the first time in 2010.

His performances for the Hatters soon attracted the attentions of Ipswich Town, who signed him for £150,000, as he spent two years at Portman Road.

A year at Crawley Town followed, before Drury returned to Kenilworth Road for £100,000 in June 2014, signed by then manager John Still, spending another 12 months with the Hatters, as he made 65 appearances in total during his two spells, scoring 10 goals.

From there, the midfielder went to Eastleigh, Ebbsfleet United, Havant & Waterlooville and then back to Sittingbourne last campaign.

A statement on the Cray official website said: "We welcome Andy to Cray Wanderers and hope he enjoys his time with the club and working alongside Danny Kedwell."
