From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Andy Griffin, (born March 7, 1979 in Billinge, England), is an English Football player, he currently plays for Portsmouth F.C..

Griffin began his career at Stoke City F.C., where he established a reputation as a solid wing-back defender. His impressive performances for the Potters meant he was signed by Newcastle United F.C. for a fee of £1.5million in January 1998.

He settled quickly into the side, earning call-ups to the England Under-18 and Under-21 teams. However, he suffered a series of injuries in the 2000/01 and 2001/02 seasons which hampered his progress and involvement with the first team.

Griffin enjoyed something of a resurgence under Sir Bobby Robson and made several solid performances during the 2002/03 season, including in the UEFA Champions League, when his winning goal against Juventus rekindled his side's campaign.

However, strong competition for places and yet another niggling injury took their toll in 2003/04, and when his contract expired at the end of the season he moved to Portsmouth, having played 103 games for Newcastle, scoring three goals. He remains a key member of Portsmouth's side into the 2005/06 season.
