Terence David John "Terry" Boyle (born 29 October 1958 in Ammanford) is a Welsh retired footballer who made two appearances for the Wales national team. A centre-half, he was highly regarded by supporters for his strong tackling and uncompromising style.

Boyle began his career at Tottenham Hotspur, making his way through the youth system, but didn't manage to break into the first team squad and moved to Crystal Palace. He went on to play for various teams in the football league including Newport County,[1] Cardiff City, Bristol City Swansea City and Merthyr Tydfil F.C. in the Conference League before moving into the Welsh football league with Barry Town.

At Newport County Boyle was selected in the 1986 Third Division PFA Team of the Year. He ended his playing career with player-manager roles at Ebbw Vale, Inter Cardiff and Cinderford Town.

Boyle currently works for the Football Association of Wales Trust and is manager of the Wales national semi-professional football team. He also previously worked as assistant manager to Tomi Morgan at Porthmadog. In June 2011 he was appointed Manager of Neath.[2]
