Simon Milton (born 23 August 1963 in Fulham) is an English former professional footballer. During his career he made over 200 appearances for Ipswich Town F.C. as a midfielder and currently works as the club's Academy Co-ordinator.

Although born in London, Milton moved to Thetford as a teenager and began his career as junior with local side Thetford Rovers. He had unsuccessful trials with Norwich City and Cambridge United and began his senior career with Thetford before joining another local non-league side, Bury Town. He played for Thetford in a friendly against Ipswich Town and impressed Ipswich manager Bobby Ferguson enough to earn a trial. Soon after, he was offered a professional contract, but then Ferguson was replaced by John Duncan. Duncan honoured the offer and Milton moved to Ipswich from Bury Town for a fee of £5,000.

He made his Ipswich debut on 28 December 1987 in a 4-2 defeat away to Swindon Town. He was loaned out to Devon sides Exeter City and Torquay United before becoming a regular with Ipswich. He was voted Ipswich's player of the year in 1996 and retired from playing professionally in 1997.

In 1998 he joined the coaching staff at Ipswich Town's academy.
