Anton Otulakowski (born 29 January 1956 in Dewsbury, England) is a former footballer who played in The Football League for Barnsley, Crystal Palace, Millwall, Southend United and West Ham United.[1]

Otulakowski started his League career at Barnsley in Division Four, managed by Jim Iley, making his League debut against Hartlepool United in April 1975. He combined his time at Barnsley with working for the Gas Board. In October 1976, he joined West Ham United for £60,000 and made his debut at Old Trafford against Manchester United with The Hammers winning 2-0.

He then joined Millwall for a combined total of £60,000 in March 1983, which also included Dave Cusack making the same journey. He won promotion from Division Three in 1985, and was named Player of the Year in 1986.

After a successful spell with Millwall, he signed for Crystal Palace for £19,000 paid for from Palace's Lifeline appeal. Unfortunately, after only 12 games, Otulakowski was forced to retire from the professional game due to a persistent knee injury
