Martijn Franciscus Reuser (born 1 February 1975 in Amsterdam) is a former Dutch footballer who last played for NAC Breda in the Eredivisie.

Reuser began his career at Dutch side Ajax, and having joined the side at youth level, made the step up to play in the first team. He was a skillful, goalscoring midfielder who looked capable of being a permanent fixture in the Dutch national setup. His career was looking very promising, but unfortunately he suffered a serious knee injury, which ended his Ajax career. He then moved on to another Dutch side, Vitesse Arnhem. It was here that Martijn made his one and only international appearance against Ghana in a friendly. He did not really hit it off at Vitesse however and was re-signed by Ajax.

He only made one appearance however and he was loaned to English side Ipswich Town in the 1999 2000 season. Having scored on his début and a memorable goal to seal off Ipswich's play-off win against Barnsley at Wembley, Ipswich signed him on a permanent basis. However his four year stay at Portman Road was troubled by injury problems. But he still managed to score 6 goals in his first full season with the club, establishing himself as one of the most dangerous attacking midfielders in the Premier League and helping Ipswich to an impressive fifth place finish in the 2000-2001 season. After that however, the injuries really set in. Ipswich were relegated the following season and he also fell out with new manager Joe Royle.

Reuser left Ipswich and joined Willem II for the 2004 2005 season. He was less troubled by injury in the Netherlands, but he still missed 2 months of the season with achilles problems. He was still the clubs top scorer however as the team finished 11th in the table. The following season was more difficult for Willem II. Reuser spent a lot of the season on the sidelines, and the side finished 16th in the table, which meant play-offs again for Reuser. He again saved his side, with a hat-trick in their semi-final against FC Zwolle. Martijn signed for another Dutch side RKC Waalwijk for the 2006 2007 season. He played for NAC Breda in the 2009 10 season.
