EPL - Shortest Players since 1992

[update] Euro 2008 Shortest Players

These are the shortest players (165 cm [5ft5] or less) to have played in the English Premier League since the competition was formed in 1992. A few of these players have played for more than one club, but I've only listed the club they've played the most matches for.

I thought for sure that Shaun Wright-Phillips would make this list, but he squeaked by at 166cm. Currently, Aaron Lennon is the only player that is listed at 5ft5 or shorter seeing first team action in the Premiership.

Note: There were a few other fringe players that would have made the list, but I chose to only include players with at least 10 Premier League appearances.
