Ian Olney (born December 17, 1969 in Luton, Bedfordshire, England) is a former football (soccer) player, who played as a striker. He started his career at Aston Villa in 1988, for whom he made 88 league appearances, scoring 16 goals, and 4 years later was sold to Oldham Athletic for £750,000, at that time Oldham's transfer record.[1] He was part of the team that dramatically survived relegation from the Premier League on the final day of the season, after defeating Southampton 4-3. He later played for Kidderminster Harriers and Forest Green Rovers.

Following his career ending, he began training to become an Independent Financial Advisor, and to this day works around the Birmingham area in this capacity.
