Andrew "Andy" Rammell (born 10 February 1967 in Nuneaton, England) is a former professional footballer who played for Atherstone United, Manchester United, Barnsley, Southend United, Walsall, Wycombe Wanderers, Bristol Rovers and Forest Green Rovers during his career. He played as a striker.

He entered professional football in 1989, when at the age of 22 he signed for Manchester United, but never played a first team game for them and was sold to Barnsley for £100,000 on 13 September 1990. He never played above the Second Division (Division One following the creation of the Premier League in 1992) and the highlight of his career was winning promotion to Division One with Walsall in 1999, when they finished runners-up in Division Two.

The money made from the sale of Andy Rammell from Atherstone United to Manchester United was used by Atherstone United to build a stand at their homeground, which they would name after the player. The stand is the only seated stand at the ground and is still used to this day.

He played his last professional game in 2003 for Bristol Rovers in Division Three, and played for a further year in the Nationwide Conference for Forest Green Rovers before retiring as a player in 2004.
