Kevin Twaddle (born 31 October 1971 in Edinburgh) is a Scottish former professional footballer.

A forward, Twaddle began his career with junior club Dunbar United. He entered senior football when he signed for St Johnstone in 1994.[1] He remained at McDiarmid Park for two years, making 51 league appearances and finding the net on ten occasions. In 1996, he joined Raith Rovers in an £80,000 deal.[1] He made 32 appearances for Rovers in two years, scoring four goals.

He moved to Morton in 1998 for a fee of £150,000, but his stay at Cappielow was brief.[1] Scottish Premier League club Motherwell signed him later that year, also for £150,000.[1] Twaddle signed for Hearts, the club he supported as a boy, in June 2002.[2] He only played eight league games for the Jambos in his twelve months with the Edinburgh side.

In 2003, he joined St Mirren, but again his stay was a short one, and he moved on after making only three appearances. Twaddle joined Scottish junior club Penicuik Athletic in the summer of 2004.[3][4]
