Christopher "Chris" Holroyd (born 24 October 1986) is an English professional football player who currently plays for League Two side Rotherham United.

Holroyd started his football career at Crewe Alexandra, progressing through the club's youth system, before failing to earn a professional contract in 2005. He subsequently joined Chester City for the third year of his scholarship, and signed professional terms in 2006. Holroyd broke into Chester's first-team during the 2006 07 season, and played over fifty times for the club. However, in July 2008, Holroyd left Chester by mutual agreement with a year remaining on his contract. A month later, in August 2008, Holroyd signed for Conference National side Cambridge United, scoring ten goals in his first season with the club. The following season, Holroyd's goalscoring form during the first-half of the 2009 10 campaign led to him signing for League One side Brighton & Hove Albion for an undisclosed fee in January 2010. In September 2010, Holroyd joined Stevenage on a three-month loan deal. He was loaned out again in March 2011 to Bury, playing a handful of games. At the end of the 2010 11 season, Holroyd was released by Brighton, and was subsequently signed by Rotherham United in June 2011.
