John Doyle (born 17 January 1946) is an Irish Australian soccer coach and former player who was a forward. He won a single cap for the Australia men's national association football team in 1970 and coached the Australia women's national association football team during 1988.

Career[edit]

Born in Ireland, Doyle played club football for various teams in the Sydney area.[1] He made one official international appearance for Australia's male team, as a substitute in a 1–0 friendly win over Israel on 10 November 1970.[2] The match was part of a world tour under new coach Rale Rasic. On the tour Doyle took part in a further six matches, scoring two goals, in games which were not considered full international fixtures.[3]

Doyle was put in charge of Australia's women's team two months before their appearance at the 1988 FIFA Women's Invitation Tournament (a pilot World Cup) in China.[4] He resigned after the team performed poorly at the 1989 OFC Women's Championship.[5]

In addition to his soccer career, Doyle worked as a high school maths teacher.[6]
