Craig Taylor (born January 24, 1974) is an English professional footballer.

Taylor was born in Plymouth. He began his professional football career with Exeter City in June 1992, but failed to make the first team before dropping into the non-leagues with Dorchester Town.

In April 1997 he joined Swindon Town for a fee of £25,000. He had a month on loan with Plymouth Argyle from October 1998 and moved to Plymouth in August 1999 for a fee of £30,000.

In February 2003, Taylor joined Torquay United on loan, initially for a month's cover as both Sean Hankin and Steve Woods were sidelined with injuries. The loan deal was extended to the end of the season and he signed for Torquay on a free transfer in June 2003.

He spent much of the early part of the 2006-07 season out of the Torquay side due to injury, but returned to the squad as an unused substitute in the 1-0 defeat at home to Boston United on December 16, 2006. However, he was soon out injured again before being able to make his comeback, which came on January 19, 2007 in the 5-2 defeat away to Notts County. Taylor was released from Torquay in May 2007 after their relegation to the Conference National.

His brother Shaun also played professionally for Swindon Town.
