Career

Armstrong's first club was Newcastle United, where in October 1993 he came up from their youth team. He left in June 1994 having not played for them, and signed to Stockport County for £50,000. In 200 games for them, he scored 62 goals. In February 1998 he joined Middlesbrough for £1.6m. He stayed until 2000, when in March he joined Huddersfield Town for three months on loan. In December 2000 he joined Ipswich Town for £500,000. In the three years he was at Ipswich he scored 19 goals in 94 appearances, including a header in Ipswich's 1–0 win over Inter Milan in the 2001–02 UEFA Cup. Armstrong described the goal as "probably the most important of my career, as long as we get a result out there (In the return leg)". Ipswich were knocked out 4–2 on aggregate. From December 2003 until March 2004 he was on loan to Bradford City, and in September 2004 he joined Darlington on a free transfer. He left Darlington in June 2005, yet re-signed for them in August 2006 to join the club on a second spell, before leaving them again at the end of the 2006–07 season. He signed for Newcastle Blue Star in the UniBond Division One North before being released days after receiving a red card against Gateshead.
