Martyn Bennett (born 4 August 1961 in Birmingham) is an English former football defender.

A product of local junior football and a schoolboy international for England, Bennett was signed by West Bromwich Albion who saw him as a future replacement for veteran Ally Robertson. He made his debut against Everton in 1979 and established himself as a first-teamer the following year, although, with the exception of the 1984-85 season, his progress was hampered by a series of injuries. Having played for England U-21s and England B, Bennett was called into the England squad a few times without playing, Bennett managed just 18 starts for Albion between 1986 and 1990, playing his final game for the club in 1989 in a 7-0 win over Barnsley. After his injuries became too much for top flight football, Bennett left Albion in 1990 to sign for Worcester City, becoming player-manager, then manager.

As of 2009 the retired Bennett delivers luxury cars in Birmingham.
