Kyle Macaulay (born 13 May 1986) is a former professional footballer who currently works as a recruitment analyst for Brighton and Hove Albion.

Born in Elgin, he started his career at Derby County but after two years at Pride Park, he was released. Macaulay is the nephew of former Aberdeen manager Steve Paterson and was signed for the Dons by his uncle. He made his debut on 4 February 2006 against Heart of Midlothian at Tynecastle.

In November 2006 he was loaned out to Peterhead before signing a permanent deal with them on 31 January 2007. After leaving Peterhead in the summer of 2007, Macaulay was out of football for a few months until he signed for Alloa Athletic after a successful trial period. He scored for Alloa in February 2008 in a game against his former club Peterhead.[1] He continued playing semi-professional football in the Scottish League system until 2012, when he graduated from the University of Stirling.

He began in a non-playing role in Sweden shortly afterwards, working as a performance analyst at Ostersunds FK for Graham Potter. Macaulay joined Swansea City in a similar role in June 2018, when Potter moved to the Welsh club.[2]
