Andrew William "Andy" Monkhouse (born 23 October 1980) is an English professional footballer and plays as a winger for Alfreton Town. He has previously played for Rotherham United, Swindon Town, Hartlepool United, Bristol Rovers and Grimsby Town.

Career[edit]

Rotherham United[edit]

Born in Leeds, West Yorkshire, Monkhouse began his career with Rotherham United as a trainee before rising to the senior ranks at the age of 18 and scored on his début in a 3–0 win against Hartlepool United.

After 128 league outings for Rotherham and a couple of long-term injuries, in May 2006 Monkhouse was released.[1]

Swindon Town[edit]

Monkhouse became Dennis Wise's first signing as manager of Swindon Town on 22 June 2006, signing a one-year contract.[2]

Hartlepool United[edit]

Monkhouse's time at Swindon was interrupted by injury and he was loaned to Hartlepool United.[3] Following a successful loan spell, a deal was then agreed between Swindon and Hartlepool United on 10 January 2007.[4] Remarkably, the first time he was on the losing side in a league match in 2006–07 was in United's defeat against Barnet on 7 April 2007.[5]

Monkhouse was named in the PFA League Two Team of the Year for the 2006–07 season[6] after Hartlepool went on to finish 2nd to secure promotion to League One.

After playing in a 1–0 win against Sheffield United in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy in October 2013,[7] Monkhouse made his 300th appearance for Hartlepool in all competitions, which made him one of only 16 'Pools' players to do so.[8]

Monkhouse was released in May 2014, ending a seven-year stay with the 'Pools'.[9][10]

Bristol Rovers[edit]

On 21 July 2014, Monkhouse signed for Bristol Rovers on a one-year deal after being released by Hartlepool United.[11][12] He helped the club earn an instant return to the Football League, being a part of the team that gained promotion by winning the 2015 Conference Premier play-off Final.[13]

Monkhouse left the club on completion of his contract as he sought a club closer to his Leeds home.[14]

Grimsby Town[edit]

On 24 June 2015, Monkhouse signed for Conference National side Grimsby Town on a one-year deal.[15]

Monkhouse was a regular player in the squad that eventually gained promotion with Grimsby's 3–1 victory over Forest Green Rovers in the 2016 National League play-off Final at Wembley, seeing Grimsby promoted to League Two after a six-year absence from the Football League.[16][17] Monkhouse was released when his contract expired at the end of the season.[18]
