Michael James "Micky" Burton (born 5 November 1969) is an English former professional footballer who played in the Football League for Birmingham City and Shrewsbury Town.[2] He played as a midfielder.

Burton was born in Tamworth, Staffordshire. He joined Birmingham City as a YTS trainee in 1986, and turned professional the following year.[3] He made his first-team debut as a substitute in the League Cup in September 1988, and his first appearance in the Second Division on 25 March 1989, coming on as substitute for Gary Childs in a 2–0 defeat away to Leicester City. He made two more appearances from the bench in the 1988–89 season,[4] but that was the end of his first-team career at Birmingham. He joined Sheffield Wednesday briefly in 1991, but without playing for their first team, and then spent a year with Shrewsbury Town before dropping into non-league football.[3]
