Andrew John Barlow (born 24 November 1965 in Oldham, Lancashire) is an English former professional football player. He played as a left-back in a career spanning fifteen years, and made more than 400 league appearances.

Barlow began his career with his hometown club, Oldham Athletic, and spent ten of his eleven years at Boundary Park playing under manager Joe Royle.

In 1995, he signed for Sam Allardyce's Blackpool, with whom he spent two years before joining Rochdale. He brought his playing career to a close at Spotland. He scored his only goal for the club, against Brighton in a 1–1 draw, with the very last touch of his professional career.[1]

Barlow retired with Ramsbottom United.

Post-retirement, he became a coach with the PFA, a role he continues to fulfill.
