Terence William 'Terry' Fenwick (born 17 November 1959 in Seaham, County Durham) is an English football coach and former player. He is the current head coach for San Juan Jabloteh of the TT Pro League in Trinidad and Tobago.




He started his career at Crystal Palace and went on to play for major clubs such as Queens Park Rangers and Tottenham Hotspur. During this period he was a regular for the England national football team. He became the first full back to score a goal from open play in an FA Cup Final when he equalized against Tottenham Hotspur in the 1982 final.

He holds the English record for most yellow cards, three, in a single World Cup tournament, which he achieved in the 1986 FIFA World Cup. During that World Cup, Fenwick was also noted for being passed by Diego Maradona as Maradona scored the "Goal of the Century".

Fenwick received a four-month prison sentence in 1991 after being convicted of drink-driving.

Fenwick scored all 8 of his league goals for Tottenham from the penalty spot in just one season, 1988–89. After 1990, it gradually became clear that Fenwick had witnessed his best days as a footballer. He was sent on loan to Leicester City before getting a permanent move to Swindon Town, a newly promoted Premier League team. His first season,1993–94, saw Swindon winning only 5 games of a total 42, conceding 100 goals and being relegated. Fenwick played 26 games during this season, and was noted for breaking the leg of Paul Warhurst. He played only two games the following season, was released, and ended his playing career shortly thereafter.


Following in the footsteps of many former players, Fenwick decided to try a managerial career. In 1995 he replaced Jim Smith as manager for Portsmouth. After an underwhelming first full season in charge, where the club only avoided relegation on goal difference, an improved second season saw the club miss out on a play-off spot by just one place, and they also eliminated then-Premier League Leeds United from the FA Cup. A dire third season cost Fenwick his job however, and he left with the club bottom of the Division One table.

His next manager job was at Northampton Town in 2003, where he only lasted for 7 games. Fenwick's first game saw a 1–0 lead turn into a 2–1 defeat away to Blackpool. The next five games saw just two draws and three more defeats. His last game in charge was against Bristol City. The 2–1 defeat saw calls for his departure from fans and he left the post the following Monday. He was replaced by Martin Wilkinson. That summer Fenwick was lined up to become the new manager of Luton Town, but he decided not to take the job due to uncertainty over the club's ownership.

Since his managerial days in England, Fenwick has spent a considerable amount of time in the Caribbean nation of Trinidad and Tobago. He has enjoyed a great degree of managerial success there, winning the country's professional football league.
