Pen Pic:  
Andy arrived and departed as a goalscorer low on confidence and showing it in his play in front of goal, but for six months in between he showed that with a fair wind behind him he was capable of scoring goals by the sack load. 
A proven goalscorer with Conference experience at Bromsgrove and a prolific scorer for Cwmbran in the Welsh Konica League. Cardiff University (huzzah!) graduate Mainwaring has also had experience at various international levels, once scoring against Brazil in a British Universities victory. His signing followed months of pursuit by Rosenior and lengthy persuasion of Rob Thomas to risk scarce resources on his fee. Arriving just before Christmas Leroy's faith was soon repaid with a Boxing Day equalizer at Forest Green, and then a stupendous 30 yarder against Bath on New Year's Day '98. Went on to chalk up a hatrick against Burton and build a potentially prolific understanding with Mings, finishing City's top scorer in 97/8 despite only playing a third of the games. 
The 98/9 season promised much but a mystery knee problem and eventual surgery on a damaged cartilage saw him lose both fitness and self-belief, problems which management seemed unwilling to help him address. Scored a sensational goal at Forest Green, but despite a few good touches and a lot of effort never recovered and managed only to run up a punching-walls catalogue of glaring misses. With Hughes oddly preferring the quick fix to the long view Mainwaring was swiftly transfer listed in March, eventually leaving in May 1999 to join Newport County. Has since moved on to Clevedon where Hughes got a sharp reminder of what he lost as Mainwaring grabbed a classy hatrick in a humiliating 5-1 home reversal for City in January 2000.
