Andrew John Proctor (born 13 March 1983) is an English footballer currently playing for Accrington Stanley. He is an England C international.

Career[edit]

The highlight of his career thus far came on 28 April 2007 in a crucial League Two six-pointer with Macclesfield Town. Procter scored two goals in a 3–2 victory which secured Stanley's Football League status in their first season back after promotion from the Conference.

He is studying at the University of Salford on a part-time basis for a degree in Physiotherapy, a programme he decided to follow after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury in 2005.[3]

Proctor signed for Preston North End on 20 January 2012 and was announced captain on his arrival and he received a new two-year deal on 1 July 2012. He scored his first goal for the club against future club Bury in a Football League Trophy tie on 18 December 2012.[4] However, after 23 league appearances, 17 of them coming from the bench he decided to cancel his contract via mutual consent with the "lily whites" after 18 months of service. After only a week without a club Procter joined Bury F.C. on a free transfer penning a two-year deal with "the shakers". In his first season at Bury he made 28 appearances in all competitions. In his second season at Bury he was put on the transfer list along with Ashley Grimes after being seen as surplus to requirements. On the 1st of September 2014 he had his contract cancelled because Procter wanted to leave Bury but Bury manager at the time David Flitcroft said "If nothing happened (by Monday) we won't be loaning players out for no money". He rejoined Accrington Stanley on the 1st of September stating "I spoke to James Beattie in the summer and made it clear that I was keen to come back. It became apparent that I wasn't going to get many games at Bury and I've never been someone to sit on a contract so I just wanted to come back and get playing games again. "When I left Accrington we'd just finished in the play-offs and were on the verge of the play-offs when I actually left. That's where I'd like to help the club return to. "I went to watch the Bury game on Saturday and really liked what I saw. If we can get a decent run of results together then there's no reason why we can't push up that table.". He will competing against the likes of Luke Joyce and Josh Windass in 2014/15 season.
