Damien Whitehead (born 24 April 1979) is an English former professional footballer who played in The Football League for Macclesfield Town.


Whitehead started his career at non-league Warrington Town where his impressive goal scoring attracted the attentions of Macclesfield Town who signed him for a small fee. After scoring 14 goals in 57 appearances (20 starts, 37 sub) for the Silkmen he left and played semi-pro football in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
