Michael Black (born 6 October 1976) is an English footballer, who played as a midfielder or striker.


Black started his career at Arsenal, joining as a trainee in 1993, later to be joined by his brother Tommy. He won the 1994 FA Youth Cup with Arsenal and made a single appearance for the first team in a UEFA Champions League group match against Panathinaikos in 1998. He also had loan spells at Brentford and Millwall before moving to Tranmere Rovers in July 1999 on a free transfer. He played sporadically for Tranmere, including as an unused substitute in the 2000 Football League Cup Final against Leicester City, before moving to Southend United in December 2000 on loan, making the deal fully permanent the following month. He left Southend in the summer of 2001 on a free transfer. After dropping into non-League, he played nine games for Enfield Town at the beginning of the 2006–07 season.[1]
