David John Foley (born 12 May 1987 in South Shields) is an English footballer who is currently a free agent. He last played for the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in the North American Soccer League in 2013.
Foley was trained as a scholar in Hartlepool United's youth academy. As a scholar, he represented the first team on several occasions and became Hartlepool's youngest ever player when he came on as a substitute against Port Vale at the age of 16. Foley also played a key role in Hartlepool's Under 19s Dallas Cup winning team in 2004. During his time at the club Foley failed to score a league goal. However, he was more successful in cup competitions, scoring seven goals, most notably against Premier League side Stoke City which earned Hartlepool a famous 2–0 victory in 2009.
In February 2010 Foley's Hartlepool contract was cancelled so he could join the Puerto Rico Islanders. After playing for the team throughout the 2010 pre-season, he made his debut for the team on 16 April 2010, in a 2010 CFU Club Championship game against Haitian side Racing des Gonaïves.
Foley signed with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in January 2013. He dressed in 5 games for the club and scored 2 goals before picking up a season-ending injury. On March 10, 2014, the Strikers announced that the club and Foley had officially parted ways by mutual agreement.
