Andrew "Andy" Barcham (born 16 December 1986) is an English footballer who plays for Portsmouth as a winger.

Career[edit]

Tottenham Hotspur and loan to Leyton Orient[edit]

Born in Basildon, Essex,[1] Barcham became a full-time member of the Tottenham Hotspur academy, and became a professional footballer in 2005. He made 19 appearances for the reserve team, including 15 starts and scored a goal in the win against Arsenal that gave Tottenham an initiative in the title race. That season, he was also top scorer for the under-18's side, with 10 goals in 22 starts. An extremely tenacious forward, he was used predominantly on the right for Tottenham's reserves.[citation needed]

In November 2006, Barcham made his first team debut for Tottenham Hotspur in the Football League Cup win against Port Vale.[2] In November 2007 he joined Leyton Orient[3] on loan until the end of the season,[4] and made his debut against Millwall.

Gillingham[edit]

Barcham joined Gillingham of League Two on 25 September 2008, originally on loan,[5] and made his debut in a home victory against Port Vale two days later, a game in which he was named as Man of the Match. He scored his first goal for the Gills in the 2–0 home victory over Chester City, and signed for the Kent club on a six-month deal in January 2009.[6] He signed a two-year contract with the club that summer,[7] but left at its conclusion in 2011.[8]

Scunthorpe United[edit]

On 28 June, Barcham signed for League One side Scunthorpe United on a two-year deal.[9] He made his debut on 13 August, scoring the equalising goal of a 1–1 home draw against Preston North End.[10] He finished the season as the club's topscorer, with nine goals.

On 3 May 2013, he was released by Scunthorpe after the club was relegated to League Two.[11]

Portsmouth[edit]

Later in the month, Barcham signed for Portsmouth on a three-year contract.[12] He made his debut in a 4–1 home defeat to Oxford United on 3 August 2013, and scored his first goal on 24 August, in a 2–2 away draw against Mansfield Town.[13]
