Andrew Raines

I’m the creator and founder of One on One Football. Current Suns Academy and U18 Allies Head Coach. I work with young aspiring footballers day in day out and I know what it takes to get the absolute best out of yourself.

I was drafted by Richmond at the age of 17, where my father once played. I played 6 seasons here, were I had some incredible highs (achievements) and some massive lows (injuries/setbacks). I then ventured back home to Queensland to play for the Brisbane Lions. It was here I transformed my game into a dedicated and disciplined player where I played on the oppositions best midfielders each week, my role was to negate and limit their influence on the game. I then went on to play a further year at the Gold Coast Suns in which I thoroughly enjoyed on field coaching the young players coming through. After I retired at the end of the 2015 season after 12 seasons in the AFL, I was offered the role of the Gold Coast Suns Academy Head coach where I coach, mentor and motivate the best talent (males & females) in Queensland. I'm super passionate about on and off field development in youth and believe each player deserves strong mentors and coaches to help guide them to where they want to go. In 2018 I created and founded One on One Football, where I manage and connect AFL accredited coaches with footballers around the country.

    Andrew Raines

    Andrew has a history of excellence due to his commitment, creativity and attention to detail. It saw him in good stead on the footy field, in Coaching positions and Admin and now in Business. Apart from giving both junior and youth footy players access to the elite current and former coaches and players, in a time of footy desolation, he has also provided opportunities for these coaches and ex players to continue ply their trade when their usual avenues of employment have been suspended. As with everything Andrew does, Caleb found his coaching 1st class with attention to detail. Caleb received some great advice and tweaks to his techniques that will stand him in good stead for the future. We highly recommend Andrew as a coach and mentor for young kids to late teens..

  • Bailey Rawson

    First Class

    Bailey absolutely loves his time with Andrew. Andrew's ability to pass on the experience, knowledge and skill he has developed from his elite playing days is second to none. Beyond his experience, Andrew possesses the very rare skill of being able to translate his elite football experience and coach at an elite level. His ability to really connect and develop rapport with young , developing footballers is first class. Andrew encourages and brings out Bailey's passion, desire and love for football, whilst also making every session and interaction fun and enjoyable. Bailey and I cannot recommend Andrew highly enough.

    Fantastic Coach Leads a Fantastic Platform

    Max was delighted to have the opportunity to go one on one with Andrew. Given Andrew's own first hand experience of being an Elite AFL Player and Coach drive the technical skills sessions which have been thoroughly enjoyable and very interactive, Andrew is very engaged and encouraging, i couldn't recommend him personally highly enough and the platform he created equally.

  • Xavier Smith


    Andrew is extremely professional and extremely attentive. My son anticipates upcoming sessions and talks non stop about what he learnt, self reflects and practices drills at home. Very happy to continue our son's passion to improve his football skills- we have supported him to attend a few different types of training desperate to club however believe the one on one sessions are priceless. Thanks Andrew!

    First Training Session - Caleb

    Hello Andrew, From the both of us thanks for your time yesterday. Caleb got so much out of this first session and is keen to continue.. Caleb loved how you filmed him in his kicking and then was able to review the footage with you. It really helped him understand what he was doing well and the areas he needs to improve on. He has taken away some things to work on before seeing you next week. Can't wait to see the improvement over thew coming weeks. Thanks so much Andrew!
