Timothy John Payne (born 10 January 1994) is a New Zealand footballer who plays for Eastern Suburbs in the New Zealand Football Championship and for the New Zealand national team. Payne is somewhat of a legend on the EA Sports game FIFA (video game series). He is often a 'free agent' in the career mode and is a great coupe for any lower league clubs.
Born in Auckland, Payne attended Sacred Heart College and started his youth career with ASB Premiership club Auckland City FC before switching to play for rivals Waitakere United. Payne played a major role in Waitakere United's success in the ASB National Youth League in 2010.
After impressing at the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup Payne trialed with Premier League side Blackburn Rovers and then spent several months training at the club. Then days after celebrating his 18th birthday Payne signed a two-and-half-year contract with Rovers in January 2012. Due to work permit issues that prevented him from playing for Rovers, he was released at the end of his contract.
In May 2012 Payne received a call up from Ricki Herbert to the All Whites alongside fellow youngster and U-17 teammate Cameron Howieson. Payne made his first appearance for the senior national team in a 1–0 win against Honduras on 26 May 2012, he came on as a substitute for Leo Bertos and played the final 15 minutes of the match. He subsequently made an appearance off the bench in the OFC Nations Cup 2012. Payne was named in New Zealand football team for the 2012 Olympics.
