Andrew Greenwood (20 August 1847 – 12 February 1889)[1] was an English cricketer, who played in the first two cricket Tests. Greenwood was small in height, but a gutsy batsman, who was also noted for his fielding in the deep.

Born in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England, Greenwood, who was a professional cricketer, played his first-class cricket for Yorkshire from 1869 to 1880,[1] but is most noted for going on tour to Australia with James Lillywhite's team in 1876-77. He played in both matches against Combined Australian teams, games which were later recognised as the first two Test matches.

Greenwood died in Huddersfield in February 1889, aged 41.
