Andy Tod (born 4 November 1971 in Dunfermline) is a former Scottish professional footballer who played mainly as a defender.

Career[edit]

Tod, a versatile player who could play in defence or attack, started his career at Dunfermline Athletic in 1992. He departed in 2001 to join Bradford City for £100,000 after an initial loan spell saw him score four goals in 12 league games, including a double against Wimbledon in October 2001.[1]

He fell out of favour at Bradford after joining permanently, however, and returned to Scotland with loan spells at Hearts and Dundee United before returning permanently with former club Dunfermline Athletic in 2003.[2] During January 2007, the fans' hero was told that he was no longer needed at East End Park by manager Stephen Kenny.

On 11 July 2007, Tod moved to Dunfermline Athletic's Fife rivals Raith Rovers on a free transfer.[3]

Without starting a game for Raith in the 2008–09 season, he was loaned out to team up with his former manager Dick Campbell at Forfar Athletic on 31 October 2008,[4] signing a permanent contract three months later.[5]

Tod spent the next two seasons with the Loons before retiring in January 2011 to take up a job as a police officer.[6]
