Club career[edit]

Portsmouth[edit]

Awford was born in Portsmouth, and began his footballing career at Portsmouth's Academy.

On 9 February 2011, Awford signed a two-year scholarship deal with Pompey.[4] Although he then spent most of the 2012–13 season with the Academy (managed by his father, Andy Awford), Nick Awford was promoted to the first team squad on 6 April 2013.[5] He was named among the substitutes in a 0-0 draw against Stevenage, but he did not leave the bench.[6] He was also on the bench in the following weekend, in a 3-2 away loss against Brentford.[7]

Awford made his Portsmouth debut on 20 April, replacing Johnny Ertl in the dying minutes of a 3-0 home win against Sheffield United.[8] It was his maiden appearance of the campaign.

On 30 August, Awford was loaned to Gosport Borough, in a one-month deal.[9] Two months later, he joined Chelmsford City on the same terms.[10]

On 27 February 2015, after having another temporary spell at Bognor Regis Town, Awford was released by Portsmouth.[11]

Havant & Waterlooville[edit]

A day after being released by Pompey, Awford joined Havant & Waterlooville in a permanent deal until the end of the season.[12]
