Wayne Quinn (born 19 November 1976 in Truro) is an English ex-professional football player who played as a defender.

He started his career at Sheffield United, breaking into their first team in 1997. In 2001 he was loaned to Newcastle United, who later purchased him for £800,000. After a difficult time at the club, scoring once against Lokeren in the Intertoto Cup,[1] he was loaned back out to Sheffield United, and then West Ham before being released on a free transfer in 2004. Quinn played for England's Under 21 team, and also played for England's 'B' side. He usually played at left full-back but could play as a left-sided midfielder.

Since he left West Ham United at the age of 28, he has not been able to find another pro club. It was reported in the Plymouth Evening Herald that Quinn was offered a trial by English Championship club Plymouth Argyle but declined the opportunity, preferring to play amateur football in Cornwall because of a bad injury which led to surgery.

Quinn played for and managed Penzance AFC along with Gary Marks and as of April 2012 has transferred to Falmouth Town, making his first appearance at centre back in a 1-1 draw at home to Elburton Villa.

He is currently player-manager of South Western Premier League Division One West club Mousehole AFC.[2]
