Nathan Stanton (born 4 May 1981 in Nottingham) is an English professional footballer who currently plays for Burton Albion.

A former Scunthorpe United trainee, Nathan made 243 appearances for the Iron (plus 21 as a sub) in 7 seasons. He scored 1 goal for the club, his strike coming against Lincoln City in the 2003 League Two Play Off Semi Final. Since his debut in 1998 a series of consistent performances for Scunthorpe quickly established himself as a fan favourite.

Injuries in his last couple of seasons limited his appearances for the club, and he was released on a free transfer in the summer of 2006. Rochdale quickly snapped him up, and the defender instantly established himself as part the first team, even becoming vice captain.

Stanton joined Burton Albion in July 2010, after he rejected the offer of a new deal from Rochdale.

Nathan's time at the club has been dogged by injury, his most recent a severe knee injury that will rule him out of the entire 2011/2012 season.

Stanton is described as a fast centre-back, who, despite not being the tallest, is strong in the air.
