As we continue our ‘Look Back’ series, today’s article will highlight one Star Player from the 2005-2006 season and the chosen player is – Andy Samuel.

By Kris Smith

The centerman from Kirkcaldy was one of the top Scottish players at that time and was one of Dundee’s main attacking threats.

Prior to joining the Stars, Andy had played for his hometown team, Fife Flyers from 1993 to 2002, then he joined Dundee for their British National League 2003-04 campaign.

Although, he was splitting his playing time with Dundee and the Camperdown Stars in Scottish National League but went full-time with Dundee for the 2005-06 season.

Then then 30-year-old played 19 games that season between the SNL and Northern leagues for Dundee and had a combined total of 67 points (31 goals and 36 assists) and only four penalty minutes.

Andy led the team in points and assists over the whole season and also helped the Stars to two playoff finals and one cup final that year.

However, after leaving the Stars after that year, Samuel returned to the Flyers and spent the next six years in his birthplace.

In his final season with Fife, Andy played in the Elite League against the Stars and scored one goal before hanging up his skates.

Next-up in our ‘Look Back’ series we will be bringing you a special Stats of the Stars for the 2005-2006 season and it will be available here at 12pm tomorrow.
