Andrew "Andy" Crompton is an English football player who is a free agent, having last played for Oldham Athletic.


Early years[edit]

Crompton spent six months as a youth player with Manchester United, but he never earned an academy contract. Before joining Oldham Athletic, he played for Fletcher Moss, the Greater Manchester side that spawned Manchester United defender Wes Brown.[1]

Oldham Athletic[edit]

Crompton joined Oldham Athletic from Fletcher Moss as a junior in 2008. He made his senior debut for the club on 10 August 2010, coming on for Lewis Alessandra with Oldham 2–1 down in the 85th minute of their League Cup first round match against Scunthorpe United.[2] He had a late opportunity to equalise for the Latics, but he was unable to prevent the defeat.[3] On 31 March 2011 it was announced by the club that they were not going to offer Crompton a professional contract and that he would be released at the end of the season, mainly because of attitude and behaviour issues. He made one appearance for the first team, scoring no goals.[4] In April it was announced he had left the club.[5]
