Aiden Witting Palmer (born 2 January 1987) is an English footballer currently playing for Ebbsfleet United.


After struggling to keep a first-team place at Leyton Orient, Palmer went on loan to Dagenham & Redbridge on 27 January 2009, and stayed for a month.[2] He made his debut on the same day in the Daggers' 1–1 draw at Grimsby Town.[3] On his return, he made no further appearances for Orient, and was released at the end of the season.

He was subsequently sentenced to 22 months in jail for violent disorder, after being involved with gangs.[4] He joined Bishop's Stortford after his release.[5]

On 11 January 2010, Palmer signed for Cambridge United on a free transfer until the end of the season as a replacement for Anthony Tonkin.[6] The move re-united him with Martin Ling, his former manager at Leyton Orient.[7] On 17 January 2010, Palmer made his debut for Cambridge United against Eastbourne Borough and received the man of the match award. He was released by Ling at the end of the season,[8] whereupon he was re-signed by Bishop's Stortford.[9]

On 14 April 2011, Watford manager Malky Mackay confirmed that the trialist would remain at Watford until the end of the 2010–11 season.[10]
