Martin Taylor (born 9 November 1979 in Ashington, Northumberland) is an English footballer who plays as a defender for Watford in the Football League Championship.

Taylor began his career with Blackburn Rovers, for whom he made more than 100 appearances, and also spent time on loan at Darlington and Stockport County. While a Blackburn player, he was capped once for the England under-21 team and played on the winning side in the 2002 Football League Cup Final. Taylor moved to Birmingham City in 2004, where he spent six seasons, and played for Norwich City on loan. He was involved in an incident in 2008 in which Arsenal player Eduardo da Silva suffered a badly-broken leg. Unable to force his way into Birmingham's first team after their return to the Premier League, he joined Watford in January 2010.
