Dwight Marshall (born 3 October 1965) is a retired Jamaican-born English footballer who played as a striker.

As a schoolboy, Marshall attended Holloway Boys School in North London, and was one of the most gifted right-wingers of his day, making many appearances for Islington schools. As a professional, Marshall was an attacking left-winger or striker who featured for Plymouth Argyle, Middlesbrough and Luton Town. He also appeared for a number of non-league sides during his career. In total, Dwight made 129 league appearances for Argyle, scoring 40 goals.[1] His time at Luton was also successful as he played in 128 league games and scored 28 goals for the Hatters.[2]

Dwight unfortunately broke his leg during the 1995-96 season, which ended with Luton being relegated from what is now the Championship. After this he never really regained his place or his form, and he eventually left for a brief spell back at Plymouth.[1] He then drifted into non-league football, playing at Kenilworth Road again for Kingstonian against Luton in an FA Cup tie during the 1999–2000 season.

Dwight Marshall now works as a Human Resources Manager for a North London college.[1]
