Shaun James Whalley (born 7 August 1987) is an English footballer who currently plays as a midfielder for Football Conference club Southport. Born in Prescot, Merseyside, he played for Norwich City and Southport as a youth before making his Football League debut with Chester City in 2004.

After leaving Chester, he spent time in non-League football with Runcorn F.C. Halton and Witton Albion. While on the books at Witton, he spent five weeks on trial with Football League One side Crewe Alexandra but was not offered a contract, so he signed for League Two side Accrington Stanley in 2006. Whalley spent almost two years with the Lancashire club, but following his release in the summer of 2008, he returned to non-League, initially with Wrexham. While at Wrexham, he had a short loan spell with Southport where he helped the team to the Conference North play-offs. He subsequently played at Droylsden, where he was part of the team that won the Manchester Premier Cup in 2010, and Hyde before joining Southport on a permanent basis in January 2011.

Described as an "express-train down the wings" by former team-mate Paul Mullin, Whalley was called up to the Football Association XI standby squad for a game against Hallam, the game taking place to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the club. He is the son of the former Presten North End captain Neil Whalley, who was also a midfielder.
