In 1968, Fearnley signed with Sheffield Wednesday. In 1970, he moved to the Bristol Rovers. In 1976, the Rovers sent him on loan to the Toronto Metros-Croatia of the North American Soccer League. After just one game, he was sent south to the Miami Toros. In 1977, Bristol sold his contract to the Fort Lauderdale Strikers. In 1978, he left the NASL to play for the Cleveland Force in Major Indoor Soccer League. After one season, he played for the Chicago Horizon.
In May 1978, Fearnley was hired as the head coach of the Birmingham Bandits, a team in the newly created Super Soccer League. However, financial irregularities prevented the league from ever beginning operations and Fearnley was released. During the few months he worked with the Bandits, he met Alaina Jones, the team's director of public relations. The two eventually married. In the fall of 1978, he was hired as the head coach of the Cleveland Force of the newly established Major Indoor Soccer League. He took the team to a 2-4 record and resigned. After retirement he studied Physiotherapy & Law, and later worked as an attorney in Florida.
