Malcolm Shotton (born Newcastle upon Tyne, 16 February 1957) is an English former professional footballer and manager. He was on the books of Leicester City as an apprentice but failed to make the break into senior football there. He played for Atherstone United and Nuneaton Borough in non-league football before signing for Oxford United in 1980. He formed a notable defensive partnership with Gary Briggs and went on to become captain of the side as they rose from Division Three to Division One. His finest moment as captain was lifting the Milk Cup at Wembley Stadium in April 1986. At the end of the following season he was transferred to Portsmouth[1]. He later played for Huddersfield Town, Barnsley, Hull City and Ayr United and, after his playing career ended, served as assistant manager at Barnsley.

In 1998 he returned to Oxford as manager, replacing Malcolm Crosby. His appointment was popular and initially successful, as he lead the team out of relegation danger to a creditable 11th-place finish in Division One. However, the following season he resigned in October 1999 with Oxford in 21st place. United were relegated to Division Two at the end of the season.

Shotton later served as assistant manager at Bradford City[2] and as of July 2006 was Director of Football at Loughborough University[3].
