Mark John Lynch (born 2 September 1981 in Manchester) is an English footballer who plays for Stockport County. His regular position is at right back.

Previously a promising junior with Manchester United, he made one senior appearance, against Deportivo de La Coruña in the UEFA Champions League in March 2003, and unfortunately scored an own goal. In July 2004, Lynch moved to Sunderland on a free transfer. He was released by Sunderland after just one season.

Lynch then signed for Hull City in July 2005. Cruelly, he suffered a knee injury in the first minute of his Hull City debut in August 2005 against QPR, and in his first game back against Coventry he was sent off. He made only 15 further appearances for Hull in the 2005 06 season, the last of which was in January, and at the end of the season he was made available for transfer by manager Peter Taylor.

Lynch moved to Yeovil Town during August 2006, following a brief loan spell. Lynch then joined Rotherham United in 2008 on a 2 year deal, after his release by Yeovil. He made his Rotherham United debut against Lincoln City, and on his third appearance for the club against Morecambe he scored two brilliant curling strikes.

On 14 July 2010, he signed for Stockport County.
