Andrew Walter "Andy" Smith (April 1890 1968) was an English professional footballer who played as a centre forward.

Smith was born in Camberwell, London. He joined Birmingham as an amateur in 1912 and turned professional two years later. Before the First World War interrupted his career, he played two full seasons and was Birmingham's leading goalscorer in each. He made guest appearances for Manchester City during the war. Before League football resumed post-war he moved to West Bromwich Albion for a fee of £100, and helped them to their first (and as of 2010 only) League championship. He scored both goals in the 1920 Charity Shield victory against Second Division champions Tottenham Hotspur. In 1923 he moved to Stoke, followed by Wigan Borough and Bournemouth, but hardly played.
