Shaun Charles Close (born September 8, 1966 in Islington, England) is a former football (soccer) centre-forward. He started his career as a youth player for Tottenham Hotspur, then had a spell with Halmstad in Sweden and after that, spent a season at Bournemouth. In 1989 he was signed by Swindon Town manager Osvaldo Ardiles, but had a mostly disappointing time at the club, managing to score just 2 goals in 53 appearances in all competitions and just 1 league goal. In 1993 he spent a season with Barnet, before moving down to non-league with Bishop's Stortford.
