Martin John Foyle (born 2 May 1963) is an English former footballer, turned football manager. In his 20 year playing career he played 533 League games, scoring 155 goals. As a manager he took charge of Port Vale and York City.

He started his career with Southampton as a trainee and after spending four years at the club, during which he was loaned out on two occasions, he joined Aldershot. A move to Oxford United followed and he became Port Vale's record signing when they paid £375,000 for him in 1991. He spent nine seasons at the club, where he scored 107 goals, making him the club's record post-war goalscorer. After retiring, he managed the club's youth team and in 2004 took charge of first-team affairs, eventually leaving the club in 2007 by mutual consent. A spell as caretaker manager at Wrexham preceded his appointment as manager of York City in 2008. Foyle took York to an FA Trophy Final and Conference National play-off Final, but resigned in September 2010.
