Mark McKay Fotheringham (born October 22, 1983 in Dundee ) is a Scottish football coach and former football player.

Career as a player

Fotheringham was the captain of the Scottish U15 national team and was then courted by some English clubs, including Manchester United . Still, he stayed in Scotland and joined Celtic Glasgow . He made his debut in the Scottish Premier League on the final day of the 1999/2000 season. In 2003 he moved to FC Dundee for free , for whom he made 51 appearances in two years and scored four goals, but could not prevent relegation in the 2004/05 season.

At the beginning of the 2005/06 season Fotheringham moved after a total of 52 missions in the top Scottish league for allegedly 300,000 euros to the German second division club SC Freiburg , where he came to twelve missions until May 13, 2006. Despite being a reservist, Mark Fotheringham was very popular with some SC Freiburg fans because of his combative style of play.

In the first half of the 2006/07 season he played in Switzerland for FC Aarau in the Super League . Due to family reasons, he left the club mid-season and returned to the UK. In January 2007 he trained with the Glasgow Rangers to get a new contract. On January 31, he decided to play for Norwich City .

He was captain of the Canaries since December 2007 after Jason Shackell was out. He kept the role of captain. On May 23, 2008, his contract was extended for one year. It was also agreed that Fotheringham would remain captain of the team.

In early March 2009, he responded in a game against Coventry City by leaving the stadium straight after being substituted. He was booed by fans during the game. Due to this reaction, he was replaced as captain by Gary Doherty , as the then coach Bryan Gunn was disappointed with this action. He has not played a game for Norwich since and was released in late April.

Since that time Fotheringham was without a club. He played for various clubs. After signing a contract with Anorthosis Famagusta , which begins in January 2010, he signed with Dundee United for three months. This is followed by the stations of Ross County ( Scottish Premier League ) and Notts County ( Football League One ).

For the 2014/15 season Fotheringham joined the English second division club Fulham . He received a contract until the end of the season, but left the club in early 2015. In January 2016, he signed a contract with Scottish second division club Livingston , for which he had already played from 2011 to 2012. He ended his active career in the summer of 2016.

Career as a coach

For the 2016/17 season , Fotheringham was Tomas Oral's assistant coach at the second division club Karlsruher SC . After Oral was released at the beginning of December 2016, Fotheringham assisted interim trainer Lukas Kwasniok for a short time . This cooperation ended on December 13, 2016.

In November 2017, Fotheringham became Gary Bollan's assistant coach at the Scottish fourth division club Cowdenbeath .

At the beginning of April 2019, Fotheringham moved to the second division club FC Ingolstadt 04 , where he was again assistant coach of Tomas Oral, who had recently taken over the relegation-threatened team. After the club was relegated to the 3rd division , Oral and Fotheringham left the club again.

On March 11, 2020, Oral and Fotheringham again took over FC Ingolstadt 04, which was just behind a promotion place in the 3rd division.
