Andrew "Andy" Legg (born 28 July 1966 in Neath) is a Welsh International footballer who currently plays for Llanelli AFC. He has previously played for Swansea City, Notts County, Birmingham City, Ipswich Town, Reading, Peterborough United, Cardiff City and Newport County. He was known for having the longest throw-in in football, being able to regularly throw the ball over 30 metres. He once held the world record with 41 m.

As assistant manager to Steve Bleasdale at Peterborough United he featured briefly in the TV series "Big Ron Manager" alongside Ron Atkinson and Barry Fry. Legg left Peterborough when a tumour was found on his neck in 2005. The operation to remove it was successful and Legg was able to return to football, despite having believed that he would be forced to retire.

Legg joined Conference North side Hucknall Town, having started the 2006/07 season at Llanelli. In January 2007, he was appointed manager of Hucknall Town. He remained manager until September 2007, when he resigned following six consecutive defeats at the start of the 2007-2008 season. [http://www.hucknalltownfc.com/news-article.asp?item=25] He has now returned to play for Llanelli. [http://llanelliafc.org/cms/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=305&Itemid=38]
