Andrew William Monkhouse (born 23 October 1980) is an English professional footballer who plays as a winger for Whitby Town.
He has previously played for Rotherham United, Swindon Town, Hartlepool United, Bristol Rovers, Grimsby Town and Alfreton Town.
Born in Leeds, West Yorkshire, Monkhouse began his career with Rotherham United as a trainee before rising to the senior ranks at the age of 18 and scored on his début in a 3–0 win against Hartlepool United.
After 128 league outings for Rotherham and a couple of long-term injuries, in May 2006 Monkhouse was released.
Monkhouse became Dennis Wise's first signing as manager of Swindon Town on 22 June 2006, signing a one-year contract.
Monkhouse's time at Swindon was interrupted by injury and he was loaned to Hartlepool United. Following a successful loan spell, a deal was then agreed between Swindon and Hartlepool United on 10 January 2007. Remarkably, the first time he was on the losing side in a league match in 2006–07 was in United's defeat against Barnet on 7 April 2007.
Monkhouse was named in the PFA League Two Team of the Year for the 2006–07 season after Hartlepool went on to finish 2nd to secure promotion to League One.
After playing in a 1–0 win against Sheffield United in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy in October 2013, Monkhouse made his 300th appearance for Hartlepool in all competitions, which made him one of only 16 'Pools' players to do so.
Monkhouse was released in May 2014, ending a seven-year stay with the 'Pools'.
On 21 July 2014, Monkhouse signed for Bristol Rovers on a one-year deal after being released by Hartlepool United. He helped the club earn an instant return to the Football League, being a part of the team that gained promotion by winning the 2015 Conference Premier play-off Final.
Monkhouse left the club on completion of his contract as he sought a club closer to his Leeds home.
On 24 June 2015, Monkhouse signed for Conference National side Grimsby Town on a one-year deal.

Monkhouse was released when his contract expired at the end of the season.
