Andy Thomson
Wembley Winner!

By Stuart McLaren

Andy Thomson is the run away leader of the poll on this site for our best ever player. So what is our favourite player up to now?

Andy Thomson

How about mentioning Andy Thomson on your 'Where Are They Now' page? He's scored in 4 out 5 rounds to help Gillingham reach the Q/F of the F.A. Cup for the first time ever, including goals against Premiership 'giants' Bradford and more recently Sheffield Wed, when he was carried shoulder high across the pitch by Gills fans afterwards, live on Grandstand! ... and it's Chelsea at the Bridge next!

Come on you Gills!!!
Jason Gillingham fan (obviously)

As I'm sure you all know, Andy has now elevated himself to hero status at Gillingham by scoring the winning goal with 2 minutes of extra time to go at Wembley in the 1999/2000 season to send his new club into the 1st Division in England for the first time ever.

Of course, he currently (June 2000) leads this site's Poll for the Best Player to pull on a Queens jersey in the last 30 years. All round hero! (Click the related link at the bottom of this page to see the latest Best Player Poll Results).

Andy returned to Queens in January 2006, and played a major part in keeping Queens in the 1st Division, before age finally caught up with him a year later and he moved on again, probably for the final tim.e
