Samuel Lee "Sam" Tillen (born 16 April 1985 in Reading) is an English professional footballer who plays for Icelandic club FH.

Tillen began his career with Chelsea, and played for their academy and reserve teams before joining Brentford at the end of the 2004–05 season.[2] Tillen is a pacy left sided player, equally at home at full back or on the wing, and showed his versatility by filling in at right back and right wing in the 2005–06 season.[citation needed] His contract was cancelled by mutual consent in January 2008,[3] and the following month he signed for Icelandic team Fram.[dead link][1] He made his debut in the first game of the Landsbankadeild season, a 3–0 defeat of Fylkir on 10 May 2008.[4] He spent five seasons with Fram, making a total of 113 appearances in league and cup matches. On 22 October 2012, Tillen signed for Icelandic champions FH on a two-year contract.[5]

His brother Joe is also a professional footballer who joined Fram in 2008.[6]
