Andy Fensome

Norwich Career: 1986-1989
Current Club: Preston North End (Professional Development Phase (U18 and U16) Coach)
Date of Birth: 18/02/1969 (Northampton)
Nationality: English


Northampton born defender Andy Fensome was a former City trainee who was released in 1989 before he was able to break into the Norwich first team. After an uneventful spell on loan to Newcastle, his next port of call was Cambridge United for whom he made an impressive 126 league appearances. This prompted Preston North End to sign him and he made 93 league appearances for the Lancashire side. He scored one goal whilst there to add to his solitary strike for Cambridge. Released by Preston in the summer of 1996, he joined Rochdale for whom he made 40 appearances in his inaugural season at Spotland.

Rochdale released Andy in the summer of 1998 and joined Barrow of the Vauxhall Conference where he partnered Mark Seagraves in defence. His place at Barrow was threatened due to the club's perilous financial position. Chairman Stephen Vaughan resigned following the start of a fraud squad investigation into the club's recent share issue in October. Vaughan's share holding and the freehold of the stadium have been put up for sale. The complete playing squad was transfer listed after a FA Umbro Trophy defeat at Hucknall Town only added to their woes. (Source: Team Talk magazine, January 1999)

Andy moved on to play for Morecambe, making over 150 appearances for them before being released in May 2002 - the club wishing to free up the wage bill to bring in some new faces. Andy joined neighbours Lancaster City in the middle of July 2002.

After a spell coaching at the Preston North End Centre of Excellence, Andy was appointed Assistant Manager at Hereford United on 22nd June 2010, working with manager Simon Davey. However they were both sacked on 4th October 2010 after winning just one of their opening 10 games.

Fensome is currently Professional Development Phase (U18 and U16) Coach with Preston's Academy.
