Andrew John "Andy" Stevenson (born 29 September 1967[2]) is an English former professional footballer who made 104 appearances in the Football League playing for Scunthorpe United and Doncaster Rovers.[3] He played as a defender or in midfield.

Career[edit]

Stevenson was born in Scunthorpe,[2] and began his football career as a junior with hometown club Scunthorpe United. He made his debut in February 1986, aged 18, as a substitute in a 3–1 defeat at Port Vale in the Fourth Division. He established himself as a first-team player during the 1988–89 season, but according to a feature in the club's match programme, his "lack of a specified position may have counted against him" when it came to regular first-team football.[4][5] He had a spell on loan at Doncaster Rovers in 1992,[1] and was released at the end of the 1992–93 season.[4]
