The Hampton Rovers Football Club would like to extend their deepest sympathies to the Landrigan family for the loss of Andrew. Lando, as he is known to all, was a local boy attending Sandringham East Primary School and Highett High with many of his former teammates who still don the green & gold today.
He started his career at Bayside Junior Football Club before moving across to help form Hampton Rovers U/16s in 1996. In 1997, Lando, suffering from a bout of chicken pox, took a famous hanger in the U/17 Grand Final which turned the game that saw Freddie Fouls side miraculously wipe a 40 point three-quarter time deficit to win the Premiership with the last kick of the game. Coincidentally, it was against Beaumaris who the Rovers will face off against this weekend. As a mark of respect, all four senior Hampton Rovers sides will wear black armbands this weekend.
A talented footballer and a great friend to many, Andrews life was tragically cut short on Tuesday. Those who wish to pay their respects can do so at Andrews funeral to be held at the Trinity Uniting Church, Black St in Brighton, on Friday August 5 at 10am. As a sign of respect to Andrew the Hampton Rovers Football Club will host the wake following his funeral.
