Andrew Todd (born September 21, 1974 in Derby, England) is an English football player who currently plays for Blackburn Rovers F.C. He is a central defender who can also play at full back or as a defensive midfielder.


Initially a trainee at Middlesbrough F.C. in 1992, he then was loaned to Swindon Town F.C. before his August 1995 exit. That same year he moved to Bolton Wanderers F.C., his first permanent club, for 250 thousand pounds. He scored two goals in total for Bolton over a four year period, watching the club win the Division One championship in the process.


He then moved to Charlton Athletic F.C., another Division One club, and won Division One for a second time. However, a training fracas with a then un-named player (who later turned out to be Dean Kiely), meant that he was on a knife-edge at the club. Initially welcomed back, he left for Grimsby Town F.C. in February 2002, who at the time were struggling in Division One. With his scoring of three goals in twelve league games, he managed to keep the club in the league.


In May 2002, he left for Blackburn, attracted by the lure of a big club, but failed to make an initial impact, and within fifteen months he was back on the transfer list again. However he subsequently came back into the side and impressed sufficiently to come off the list and he remainds a key part of the senior squad into the 2005-06 season.


Andy Todd is the son of the former Derby County and England defender Colin Todd who was manager of Middlesbrough F.C. when Andy made his debut.
