Ian Storey-Moore (born 17 January 1945 in Ipswich) is an English former football player, and former chief scout at Aston Villa, having been added to Martin O'Neill's backroom staff in September 2006. He left this role when Martin O'Neill resigned as Aston Villa manager

Storey-Moore was playing in Scunthorpe when he was discovered by a Nottingham Forest scout. Later in life, he also became a scout for Forest.

In 1972, Storey-Moore was introduced by Brian Clough, then manager of Derby County as a new player, with a fee of £225,000 reportedly agreed.[1] However, he instead opted to sign for Manchester United, managed by Frank O'Farrell.

In 1974, he retired due to injury. He had scored 12 goals for United.

Storey-Moore represented England once, in a game against the Netherlands in 1970.
