Andy GouckIn April 1990, Gouck started his career as a trainee at his hometown club, Blackpool. He played 148 league games, in which he scored 22 goals, and played four FA Cup games. He also captained the side on a few occasions.

In July 1996, Gouck moved to Rochdale. During two seasons at Spotland, he played 42 games and scored five goals. After two successful seasons with Rochdale, Gouck was released.

He then moved to Southport in the Conference National. He spent three seasons with the Sandgrounders, playing 57 league matches and scoring four goals, before being released in May 2001.

The same month he signed a two year contract with fellow Conference National club, Morecambe, where he scored four goals in 42 appearances.

After a loan spell with Accrington Stanley then in the Northern Premier League in 2002, he signed permanently with the club in January 2003.

During his time with Stanley, he scored five league goals in 26 matches. In November 2003 he scored an injury-time goal for Stanley, by then in the Conference National, as they beat Third Division Huddersfield Town 1-0 in the first round of the 200304 FA Cup, live on the BBC. Later that month, however, Gouck was found guilty of drink driving in Blackpool, after he had narrowly avoided a head-on collision with a police car in the resort. He was twice the alcohol limit and he was banned from driving. In March 2004 he was hospitalised in Victoria Hospital, Blackpool for five days suffering from viral pneumonia.

Gouck left Stanley in May 2004 and then had a spell with Fleetwood Town.

Gouck played much of his football career part-time while balancing a role as a social worker, a job he now does full-time.

Now retired from professional football he lives back in his hometown of Blackpool where he plays Sunday League football, for Bloomfield Veterans FC, in the Blackpool & Fylde Sunday League Alliance Division One, who he has played for since July 2006.
