Fox Signs For The Mariners

9 March 2018

Grimsby Town Football Club are pleased to announce the signing of free agent, Andrew Fox until the end of the season.

The 25-year-old spent a short period on trial with the Mariners in the summer, before signing for new manager, Michael Jolley's Swedish side AFC Eskilstuna in August 2017 for the remainder of the season. 

"I'm very excited to be here", said Fox. "There are only 10 games left and I know what the teams objective is in that time and I want to contribute the best I can to that."

"I've worked with Michael before in Sweden and really enjoyed my time working alongside him. I hope that we can both have some success in the next 10 games and secure the club's place in the Football League".

Fox has played at Blundell Park on two previous occasions, with The Mariners securing victories in both games vs. Peterborough United during pre-season and vs. Stevenage in a 5-2 victory in Sky Bet League Two. Fox went on to joke "When I play here, Grimsby tend to win!"

The left-back began his career in the United States, playing College football for St Edward's University, making the move back to England in 2015 after being invited for a trial with Peterborough United which earned him his first professional contract in the Football League, signing a one-year-deal with the club.

Fox made his debut for Peterborough in October 2015, coming on as a second half substitute in a 4-0 victory over Doncaster Rovers. In his short spell at The Posh, Fox made 18 league appearances and also made 6 league appearances whilst on loan to Kidderminster Harriers. 

Following his release from Peterborough United, Fox joined Sky Bet League Two side Stevenage, going on to make 9 appearances for the club before making the move to Scandinavia under the stewardship of manager, Michael Jolley.

Andrew will be eligible for selection tomorrow after receiving international clearance and will wear the number 23 shirt.
