Andrew Merrington

Andrew Merrington (born 27 November 1978) is an Australian rules footballer.

Recruited to the Carlton Football Club in the 1999 National Draft, Merrington was considered a future key position/ruckman prospect. However he only played 18 games with the Blues until the end of the 2003 season, where he was delisted after spending much time with the Northern Bullants in the VFL rather than the senior Carlton team.

After being delisted he was recruited by East Perth in the WAFL. He immediately cemented himself a place in the side usually playing centre half forward, and was rewarded with state selection for Western Australia in his first year.

Merrington won the 2005 F.D. Book Medal for being the club's best and fairest player. He was appointed one of the club's vice captains for the 2006 season.
