From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Anton Ferdinand (born February 18, 1985 in Peckham, London) is an English association football (soccer) player.

Born into a footballing family, (his brother Rio and cousin Les are both successful players), Anton Ferinand showed considerable talent from an early age. Like his brother, he prefers to play in defence and his ability in this position led to him being signed to West Ham United F.C.'s famed academy.

Ferdinand was handed his full debut in August 2003 when he started the 2-1 victory at Preston North End F.C. on the season's opening day, and went on to feature in 26 games that term.

In the 2004/05 season, he cemented his first team place with several key performances (including scoring the opening goal on the final day as the Hammers beat Watford 2-1) as West Ham booked a play-off spot. West Ham went on to beat Preston in the final, earning them promotion back into the FA Premier League after an absence of two years.

At the end of July 2005, Ferdinand decided to stay in West Ham by signing a three-year contract extension with the club. He has started the 2005/06 season in West Ham's defence and is also now a regular selection for England's Under 21 side.
