Kallum Higginbotham (born 15 June 1989 in Salford, Greater Manchester) is an English footballer who currently plays as winger for Falkirk.

Kallum started his football career at Salford City before joining Oldham Athletic at 18 years of age. Despite a half-decent scoring record in the reserves at Oldham he never made it into the first team at Boundary Park. His most notable moment while at the Latics was his hattrick in the Lancs Youth Cup Final, ironically against his later employers Rochdale.

Kallum was released by Oldham one year into his Youth Trainee contract, and joined the Dale to complete the last year, hoping to persuade manager Keith Hill to offer him a professional contract. Higginbotham wore the number 18 shirt for the 07/08 season. His debut came for Rochdale in a friendly against Rossendale United, in which Kallum scored the winning goal.

During the 2007/08 Season, Kallum became a regular in the first-team at Spotland, finding himself in favour over out-of-sorts winger Ben Muirhead. Kallum's first league goal came on 5 December when he scored against Accrington Stanley in a 2 1 win for Rochdale. The 2008/09 season saw Kallum displaced by the emergence of Will Buckley and he spent two spells on loan to Accrington Stanley. At the end of the season he was placed on the transfer list but has since become part of the main squad again and was taken off the list.

In June 2010 he signed for Falkirk on a two year deal.
