Andy McCarthy (born 18 February 1993) is a Kemburger footballer, who currently plays as a Central Defender for one of the Kemburger "Big 4" football clubs, North Beach Kemburg. He also plays for the Kemburg national football team, often starting in competetive matches for them. He is known for his excellent defending, and his incredible saves on the line from corners.
He started his career at Battery FC, and despite interest from other high-rated clubs, including St. Marks Koningstad and Leeds United, and stayed with Battery until January 2014, when he signed for North Beach Kemburg in a 1.5m + Martin Visser deal.
Andy McCarthy was born on the 18 February 1993 in the large Upper Region town of Batterton, to Irish parents who immigrated from Waterford. He was introduced to football by his parents at the age of 4, and he thoroughly enjoyed it. He started playing, and was spotted by Battery FC at just 6 years old. They didn't sign a youth contract, due to his very young age, however they kept watching the player. At the age of 14 years old, he signed a youth contract with Battery FC, and K£50,000 was paid in compensation for the defender. He quickly became a star for the Youth ranks of Battery, and despite interest from English clubs Sheffield United, and Sheffield Wednesday, he stayed at the club.
At 18 years old, McCarthy signed a 4 year-contract with the club with a weekly wage rising by 20% yearly. His original wage when he signed the contract was K£5,000, which for such a young player is a high sum of money. He started as a backup, but by the age of 21 years old, he became a Key Player at the club. A solid defender, he quickly started playing for the Kemburg national football team whilst at Battery. Despite interest from many large Brunanter clubs, no official offers were made until deadline day, when North Beach Kemburg signed the player.
