Andrew Michael Lonergan (born 19 October 1983) is an English footballer who played as a goalkeeper for Liverpool in the 2019-20 season.

Liverpool career

Lonergan spent the majority of his career in the lower leagues of English football, playing over 200 games for Preston North End. The second half of his career was spent moving around multiple Championship and League One sides. The goalkeeper had never played for a top-level team.

In the summer of 2019, Lonergan was invited to train with the Liverpool squad, who had few fit goalkeepers for the club's pre-season. He played multiple friendlies, but wasn't offered a contract. Injuries to Alisson and Caoimhin Kelleher in August however, left just one match-fit goalkeeper for the next month or so.

On 12 August 2019, it was confirmed that Lonergan had signed a short-term contract with the club. He started on the substitutes bench in the UEFA Super Cup victory over Chelsea, earning himself a first career winners' medal.

Lonergan remained part of the squad for the rest of the campaign, and picked himself up two further winners’ medals, for the FIFA Club World Cup, and the Premier League.

Upon the expiration of his contract in July, Lonergan left the club, without having made a competitive appearance.
