Percy Martini (4 June 1888 - 1 July 1961)[1] was an Australian rules footballer who played for Geelong in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

A Full-forward, from 1909 until 1919 he was Geelong's leading goalkicker in every season except 1915. In 1916 the club did not take part in the competition due to the war and Martini played with Richmond for the season and topped their goalkicking.

With 51 goals in 1910 he became the first Geelong player to kick over 50 goals in a season and it was the biggest tally in the league for the year. When he retired in 1920 he had managed to kick 333 goals for Geelong which at the time was a club record.
