Benjamin Francis "Ben" Chorley (born 30 September 1982 in Sidcup, England), is an English footballer currently with Leyton Orient.

A central-defender, Chorley was originally an Arsenal trainee, where he won the FA Youth Cup in 2001. He joined Milton Keynes Dons in 2003, when they were still known as Wimbledon, having previously been on loan with Brentford.

It was announced on 26 October 2006 that he had joined Gillingham on a 3 month loan. He made his debut for Gillingham as a second half sub for Andrew Crofts in a 2 0 home win over Carlisle United on October 18. His first goal was the winner in a 3 2 away win over Tranmere Rovers on 23 December 2006.

On the 10 January 2007 he signed another loan contract at Gillingham for the rest of the season, days after finishing his previous loan spell. It was announced on 8 May 2007 that Chorley's loan with Gillingham was not to be renewed. Later the same day, it was announced that his contract with the Dons had been terminated by mutual consent.

In July 2007 he joined Tranmere Rovers, signing a two-year contract. He was in and out of the Rovers team in his first year, facing competition from Antony Kay for a centre back spot. He got his first goal for the club in the 2 1 win away at Southend United in October 2007.

On 17 June 2009, Leyton Orient signed Chorley on a two year deal from Tranmere Rovers.
