Goalkeeper Coach

Goalkeeping coach Andy Warrington joined the club in the summer of 2015 and brings his years of experience to the goalkeepers currently at the club.

Andy began his playing career at York City and was part of a squad that  famously defeated Manchester United over two legs in the League Cup, playing in the second leg at Bootham Crescent. 

After five years at York and 61 appearances, he made to move to non-league with Doncaster Rovers and became a big part of their rise to the upper echelons of the Football League during his eight years there.

 In 2003, he saved two penalty kicks to help Rovers to the Conference Play-Off Final and was part of the team that defeated Dagenham and Redbridge in the Final to earn promotion. The following season, Rovers secured back-to-back promotions by winning the Division Three Title before Andy suffered an injury in the early weeks the following season.

Following this, he went out on loan to Bury and then spent a year with them permanently before signing for Rotherham United. He made over 200 league appearances for Rotherham and was a big fan favourite there, being their first choice goalkeeper in League Two as recently as the 2013-2014 season.

He left Rotherham at the end of that season and spent a year at Buxton in the Northern Premier League before agreeing to put a halt to his playing career and join Town in the July, making a number of convincing appearances last pre season.
