Mike Metcalf (born 24 May 1939, Liverpool) is a former English professional footballer who made more than 300 appearances in The Football League for Wrexham and Chester.

Metcalf began his career with Everton, before joining Wrexham as a part-timer in May 1957 to allow him to complete a degree course in chemistry.[1] Over the next six years he scored 58 times in 121 league games for Wrexham before switching to local rivals Chester for £5,000 in December 1963.[2] The following season saw Chester score 141 in Fourth Division, FA Cup and Football League Cup matches, with Metcalf netting 37 of them.[3] His fellow forwards Jimmy Humes, Elfed Morris, Hugh Ryden and Gary Talbot also all scored at least 20 goals during the campaign.[3]

Between October 1964 and September 1967, Metcalf started a club record 127 consecutive league games.[4] The record remained intact until March 2009, when it was broken by goalkeeper John Danby.[5] Metcalf remained with Chester until the 1968–69 season, playing his final Football League game in a 2–0 defeat to Workington on 30 November 1968.[6]

Over the following years, Metcalf had spells playing for Altrincham, Bangor City and Rhyl[1] and then became player-manager at Connah's Quay Nomads and Witton Albion.[1] Metcalf then ran his own chemical company, Metlab Supplies Ltd, and continued to play local football in the Chester area.[1]

He is sometimes referred to as Mick Metcalf.[7]
