Carl Finnigan (born 1 October 1986, in Jarrow) is an English footballer who is currently playing for St. Johnstone.

Finnigan was born in Jarrow. As a youngster, he played for Jarrow F.C.'s under-age teams before joining Newcastle United. He scored 56 goals for Newcastle's reserve and academy teams from 102 starts and 20 substitute appearances, but never appeared in a competitive first-team game.

Finnigan joined Scottish Premier League club Falkirk on 23 January 2007, replacing Anthony Stokes who had left the "Bairns" to sign for Sunderland. He made his Falkirk debut, and his first appearance in a senior league, as a second-half substitute against Kilmarnock on 27 January 2007. The forward scored his first Bairns' goal three weeks later against Rangers, when he "played a neat one-two with Gow and drilled a shot beyond McGregor from the edge of the penalty area". In the 2008 09 season, he played a major role, scoring twice and winning a penalty, in Falkirk's 4 0 victory over rivals Inverness Caledonian Thistle in what proved a successful fight against relegation. He also scored the winner against the same opposition to take Falkirk through to the semi-final of the Scottish Cup, and had a goal disallowed in the Cup Final.

Before the 2009 10 season, Finnigan signed a new one-year contract with Falkirk, with an option for a second year.

On 24 June 2011, Finnigan signed for SPL club St. Johnstone.
