Clive Goodyear (born 15 January 1961 in Lincoln, England) is a former football (soccer) defender. He started his career at Luton Town, after 5 years with the Hatters moved to Plymouth Argyle and after 3 seasons with Plymouth he moved to Premier League side Wimbledon. In the 1988 FA Cup Final, in which Wimbledon famously upset Liverpool 1-0 Goodyear fouled John Aldridge, which gave Liverpool a controversial penalty. Aldridge took it, but Wimbledon goalkeeper Dave Beasant saved it.

Although being named in the squad for that Cup Final, he wasn't a regular in the side and only made 26 appearances in 3 years and was sold to Brentford, where he spent one season.

He finished his career in Hong Kong, with Ernest Borel. After sustaining a major knee injury he began studying physiotherapy and returned to Luton Town as a physiotherapist in 1993. He was then a physio at Cardiff City and Chester City.
