Tony Battersby (born 30 August 1975) is a footballer who plays as a striker for Deeping Rangers. Battersby is one of football's journeymen and has played for many clubs both The Football League and non-League.

Battersby started his career at Sheffield United, later moving to Notts County, Bury and Lincoln City, before dropping into non-League.

In the summer of 1995 Battersby joined Finnish second division club BK-IFK (now Vasa IFK) on loan, scoring 24 goals in just 18 appearances for the Vasa club. He attracted the attention of the Premier League-team VPS Vaasa with his performances with the city rivals BK-IFK, but no deal was ever to be as Battersby returned to Sheffield United in the autumn.
