Mark Nicholas Stimson (born 27 December 1967) is an English former professional footballer and current manager of Kettering Town. He signed his first professional contract with Tottenham Hotspur in 1985, but was unable to gain a regular place in the team. In 1989, he moved on to Newcastle United, where he made over 80 appearances in the Football League. He later played for Portsmouth, Southend United and Leyton Orient before dropping into non-league football.

He was appointed manager of Grays Athletic in 2003 and remained in charge until 2006 when he took over as manager of Stevenage Borough. He led Grays to victory in the final of the FA Trophy in 2005 and 2006, and repeated the feat with Stevenage in 2007. In November 2007, he became manager of a Football League team for the first time when he took over at one of his former clubs, Gillingham, but he was unable to prevent the club's relegation from Football League One at the end of the 2007 08 season. He led Gillingham back into League One the following season via the League Two play-off final, but his contract was terminated after the "Gills" were relegated back to League Two the following season. On 1 June 2010, Stimson was appointed as the new manager of League Two club Barnet, but he was sacked on New Year's Day 2011 with the club near the bottom of the table.
