Tom Taylor (born 10 February 1985) is an English footballer.



Taylor came up through the ranks in the youth academies of English clubs Walsall and Derby County, but made his professional debut in Norway at the age of 19 after being signed by Viking FK manager Roy Hodgson.

After brief spells at Grimsby Town, Walsall and a one-month loan at non-League side Halesowen Town in England, Taylor moved to the United States to play with the Portland Timbers of the USL First Division in 2007.[1]

Moving back to the UK, Taylor was signed by Wrexham manager Brian Little in August 2008, but only saw limited action in the Wrexham squad as the club struggled in the Conference National.[2]

Taylor was announced as a Real Maryland Monarchs player on 10 February 2009, scoring in his first game for the Monarchs,[3] and helping the Monarchs reach the play-offs for the first time in their history.

Taylor signed for Wilmington Hammerheads in February 2011, his most recent club to date.
