Stephen "Mandy" Hill (born February 15 1940 in Blackpool, Lancashire) is an English former professional footballer. He played as a forward.

Hill began his career with his hometown club, Blackpool, in May 1959. He made his debut for "the Tangerines" on October 3, 1959, in a 3–1 defeat to Manchester City at Bloomfield Road, as a deputy for the injured Stanley Matthews. He made a further six appearances in the 1959–60 campaign.

In 1960–61, Hill made ten league appearances, as well as appearing in his first FA Cup tie – a 3–1 second-round-replay loss at home to Leeds United on October 5, 1960.

Blackpool manager Ron Suart gave Hill an extended run in the team during the 1961–62 season, after Stanley Matthews was allowed to return to Stoke City. He started 36 of the club's 42 league games, and scored his first goal in the process – the second in a 2–0 victory at home to West Ham on September 4, 1961. He also helped Blackpool to the semi-finals of the League Cup, appearing from the second round onwards.

In 1962–63, Hill's appearances were limited due to injury. He started only nine league games. The same applied for the following 1963–64 season, which proved to be his final one for the club. After losing his place to Leslie Lea, Hill made only nine league appearances, the final one occurring on January 18, 1964, in a 2–0 loss at home to Spurs.

Hill joined Tranmere Rovers in September 1964, with whom he made over 100 league appearances.

He finished his career with Wigan Athletic.
