Richard Tracey (born 9 July 1979) is a semi-professional footballer who plays for Bradford Park Avenue in the Northern Premier League.

Tracey started his professional career at Sheffield United in 1997. On 5 March 1998 he moved to Rotherham United, where he made one start and four substitute appearances before joining Carlisle United, initially on loan, on 12 March 1999. Tracey appeared in the famous Jimmy Glass game against Plymouth Argyle, in which the goalkeeper scored in the 94th minute to keep Carlisle United in The Football League. Tracey went on to make 54 starts and 15 sub appearances for the Cumbrians, scoring 15 goals.

Tracey joined Macclesfield Town in January 2001 and played for the club 37 times, scoring five goals. On 8 March 2002 after falling out of favour with then manager David Moss, Tracey signed for Scarborough but made only one appearance in which he suffered a bad injury for the "Seadogs" before leaving the professional game and moving into semi-professional football.

Tracey has played for several clubs, including Bradford Park Avenue and Ossett Town, and currently plays for Bradford Park Avenue.

Tracey is now a full-time PE teacher at St Wilfrids Catholic High School.
