Mark Graham Jackson (born 30 September 1977 in Leeds) is an English footballer who is currently playing for reformed Farsley AFC, after his last club Farsley Celtic was wound-up by its administrators on 12 March 2010.

He started his career as a trainee at his hometown club Leeds United, but found first team opportunities scarce. After 2 failed loan spells at Huddersfield Town and Barnsley, he joined Scunthorpe United on a free transfer.

After 5 successful years there, he moved to Kidderminster Harriers, before coming back to league football at Coca-Cola League Two side Rochdale for a fee of £35,000.

He was released by Rochdale on 11 May 2007, joining Conference National new-boys Farsley a month later. Jackson became the football in the community officer in Farsley and ran camps for children during the school holidays. He became the manager of the Under-19s team which were formed at the start of the 2008/09 season. When his first team manager, John Deacy was sacked, Neil Parsley took over and Jackson became the first team assistant manager.
