Dunfermline Athletic

Andrius Skerla

Andrius Skerla (born April 29, 1977 in Vilnius) is a Lithuanian internationalist who played for Dunfermline from 2000 to March 2005.

Skerla started his career at local club FK ?algiris Vilnius in 1995, before PSV Eindhoven signed him in 1996.  Skerla's time at Dunfermline was his most successful period of football. He was signed from PSV in 2000 by manager Jimmy Calderwood and was immediately put into the starting line up. After a successful first season at Dunfermline he was linked with numerous clubs including Rangers, but Skerla insisted he wanted to stay at East End Park. Skerla will most probably be remembered by the Pars fans, for scoring Dunfermline's only goal in the 2004 Scottish Cup Final against Celtic.

In March 2005, Skerla announced he wished to leave Dunfermline as he decided to look for new challenges.  After Russian side Rubin Kazan had a bid failed because it did not meet Dunfermline's valuation of the player, Skerla re-iterated his decision that he wanted to move and eventually he moved to Tom Tomsk for £200,000.
