Carl James Pettefer (born 22 March 1981) is an English footballer, who currently plays for AFC Totton. He began his career at Portsmouth FC, signing his professional papers with then manager Alan Ball in August 1999 when aged 17. He made his full debut for Portsmouth against West Bromwich Albion F.C. in the Football League Championship when the club was under the management of Graham Rix.

He moved to Exeter City F.C. on loan in October 2002, making 37 appearances in total, before taking up a further loan period at Southend United towards the end of the 2003-04 season. He played regularly for the club during this spell, appearing in the side that lost to Blackpool FC in the LDV Vans Trophy final at the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff. Despite breaking his leg in a fixture against Huddersfield Town F.C., manager Steve Tilson signed him permanently at the end of 2003-04 season and he went on to make 74 appearances for the club as a right midfielder. He returned to the Millennium Stadium on two further occasions with Southend. Firstly, for a second successive LDV Vans Trophy final, which Southend lost 2-0 to Wrexham F.C. after extra time and then for the 2004-05 season League 2 Promotion Play-off. Southend beat Lincoln City 2-0 (after extra time) and won promotion to League 1. He was the only Southend player to start all of the club’s league and cup fixtures in that season.

Following an injury affected season in 2005-06 during which Southend gained promotion to the Championship as league winners, he was signed by Oxford United, playing under manager Jim Smith, in the Nationwide Conference. He soon earned a reputation as a hard working player and was a favourite amongst the fans. However, in January 2008, he was transfer listed by manager Darren Patterson, who had taken over from Smith, subsequently being released on the 29th April 2008.

He went on trial at Bournemouth during the summer of 2008 and impressed manager Kevin Bond to earn himself a contract. With opportunities for first team appearances limited, he moved to Bognor Regis Town and subsequently to AFC Totton in 2008, where he currently plays central midfield and captains the first team.
