Agnew started his playing career at Barnsley, staying there for 8 years before moving on to
Blackburn Roversfor £700,000 in June 1991 - making him the Ewood Parkclub's most costly signing at the time. His spell at Blackburn was unsuccessful, only making four appearances before he joined Portsmouth on loan and then Leicester permanently in the 1992-93 winter.
During his time at Blackburn, the club earned promotion to the new
Premier League, but Agnew's part in the success was a minimal one as the attention was focused on big-money new signings such as Alan Shearerand Stuart Ripley.
Agnew then moved up the country to Sunderland, helping them win promotion to the Premier League as Division One champions (although they went down after just one season) and in 1998 he signed for York City, and despite his efforts the
Bootham Crescentside were unable to avoid relegation from Division Two in 1998-99.
Agnew spent the 2001/2002 season playing for Gateshead where he finished his playing days. That season he moved into coaching becoming assistant manager of Gateshead to Gary Gill. Both he and Gill resigned from Gateshead after the playing budget was cut in early October 2002.
Agnew continued his coaching at the Middlesbrough Academy and then joined Leeds United as Reserve Team Manager in 2004. Agnew left the club to become assistant manager at
Hartlepool Unitedon 23 June 2005. However in 2006, Agnew quit his position at Hartlepool and rejoined Leeds as Under 18's manager.
He rejoined Middlesbrough as reserve team coach on
23 January 2007. He was promoted to first team coach on 7 July 2008following the departure of Steve Harrison. [cite news|url=http://www.skysports.com/story/0,19528,11680_3790225,00.html |title=Harrison leaves Boro |publisher=Sky Sports |date= 2008-07-07|accessdate=2008-07-07]
