Andy May made his City debut as a 18 year old on 27th March 1982, in a 0-0 draw at Middlesbrough. The Bury born youngster spent a couple of seasons to break into the City team during the John Bond/Benson regime, but under Blly McNeil he blossomed and became a regular player in the City midfield from 1983 to 1997. After McNeil was replaced with Mel Machin there was no longer room for the former England U21-player, and so he was sold to Huddersfield in July 1987.
In November that same year May was on the opposing half in the 10-1 battle with Huddersfield, and he even scored the consolidation goal (a penalty) in a game where Stewart, White and Adcock scored a trio of hat-tricks. He stayed with Huddersfield until 1990 when Bristol City payed £90k for his services. He later moved to Millwall in a part money/player exchange and stayed there until 1995, making 54 league games for the Lions.
