Jason Batty (born in Auckland, March 23, 1971) is a retired New Zealand football goalkeeper who is currently the goalkeeper coach for the San Jose Earthquakes. Batty frequently represented his country in the 1990s. He later coached Dartmouth College in the U.S. and served as the Director of Goalkeeping for Texas Premier SC.

Club career[edit]

He only made 14 appearances for a Singapore team S-League before joining Football Kingz. Batty made 16 appearances for the Football Kingz in their inaugural season in the NSL 1n 1999 before a brief spell in England with Grimsby Town on a short term contract in October 2000. He failed to dislodge regular shot stopper Danny Coyne and understudy Steve Croudson. After only three months he left the club and joined Scunthorpe United on similar terms but left at the end of the season after failing to make an 1st Team appearance. He then briefly played for Stalybridge Celtic.

He is currently the goalkeeper coach for the San Jose Earthquakes.[1]
