Sydney Max Kelly (27 November 1909 – 22 March 1987)[1] was an Australian rules footballer who played with Geelong in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Kelly, who came locally Geelong West, performed well in the 1930 VFL seconds season.[2] He was joint winner of the Gardiner Medal, with Richmond's Selwyn Baker and was on a wing in Geelong's premiership team.[3] This earned him promotion to the senior in 1931 and he made eight appearances that season, all in wins.[4] He didn't feature in a senior game in 1932 but played 13 games in 1933.[4]
