Carl Brian Griffiths (born 16 July 1971 in Oswestry) is an English-born Welsh footballer, now manager. He is currently manager of Aveley.

He started his career with Shrewsbury Town in 1988, and after five years moved on to Manchester City. In 1995 he transferred to Portsmouth, moving on to Peterborough United a year later. He joined Leyton Orient in 1997, where he stayed for four years, interrupted by short spells at Wrexham and Port Vale. He played for Luton Town between 2001 and 2003, later dropping into non-league football with Harlow Town, Braintree Town, Brentwood Town, and Maldon Town. He also represented Wales at under-21 level and also for the "B" team. Within his three spells with Leyton Orient he achieved cult status and in 2004 received 9% of the vote for all-time cult hero behind Peter Kitchen and Terry Howard.

Turning to management in 2008, he took charge of Brentwood Town for a year. In 2010 he was made manager of Aveley.
