Andrew Crofts started his career with Gillingham and made his first team debut at just 16-years-old towards the end of the 2000/01 season against Watford.

He missed several months of the following season after breaking his leg playing for the reserves, and didn't return to first team action until October 2002.

Crofts was a regular in the 2004/05 season, signing a new four-year contract in January, and was a virtual ever present in 2005/06.

He took over the captaincy in the 2007/08 season but it was not a happy one for the Gills, who were relegated to League Two.

After being stripped of the armband in October 2008 Crofts went on loan to Peterborough, and a further loan spell followed at Wrexham before the end of the season.

In June 2009 Crofts signed a two-year contract with Brighton & Hove Albion, making his debut against Walsall on 8t August.

His first goal came in October against Yeovil, and he was made captain by Gus Poyet later in the season.

After making 44 league appearances for the Seagulls in 2009/10 Crofts joined for the Canaries in May 2010 for an undisclosed fee, signing a two-year contract at Carrow Road.

He made his league debut against Watford on 6th August, scoring City's first goal in a 3-2 defeat.

Crofts made his international debut for Wales against Azerbaijan in October 2005, and has more than a dozen caps for his country.
