Don Heath (Born 26 December 1944 in Stockton-on-Tees, County Durham) is a former football Outside Right.

Beginning his football career as an apprentice at local club Middlesbrough in 1962, Heath did not play first team football until he signed a professional contract with Norwich City. Making a total of 105 league appearances for the club, including helping them reach the semi-finals of the FA Cup, he was sold to Swindon Town in 1967 for ₤17,000.

Heath made his début for Swindon on 16 September 1967 in a game versus Northampton Town that his new club won 4-0. He was a member of the squad that won the 1969 League Cup and also the 1970 Anglo-Italian Cup before injury forced him out of the first team. With the arrival of Arthur Horsfield at the club, he was side-lined for much of the 1970 season before playing his last game for Swindon on 14 March 1970.

He moved to Oldham Athletic in July 1970 and was a central figure in their successful promotion season of 1970-71. Peterborough United obtained his services on a free transfer the following season before he moved once more, this time to Hartlepool United where his league playing career finished.

Heath went on to play for non-league clubs Gateshead United, Crook Town and South Bank before retiring and taking a job working for ICI in the North of England.
