Timothie Fielder (born 27 December 1984) is a retired Australian Rules Footballer.
He made his debut with the VFL Frankston Dolphins in 2002, aged 17. He was briefly looked at as a late round draft pick by that year's AFL Runner-Up, Collingwood. He was also considered as a pick for Sydney Swans, West Coast Eagles and Geelong Cats.
After being overlooked he signed with the Frankston Dolphins and became the following season's youngest player in the competition, narrowly qualifying to play by four days.
He won the Coaches Choice award in 2003 in the reserve squad. His trademark's were his long sleeve guernsey and quick pace. Fielder was a Small Defender or Forward, playing mainly on a Half Back Flank.
In late 2004, Fielder left the Dolphins after being sought out by Norwood in South Australia. Allegedly he signed on to play for the Redlegs, before being seen with the Port Adelaide Football Club. Under returning coach John Cahill.
In a newspaper article, Fielder described the move to Alberton as "The most beneficial thing I could've done for my footy. These guys are working really hard to help me get the best out of myself". He also noted former Port Power captain, Gavin Wanganeen as being "A massive inspiration and he's a reason that younger guys like myself play this game. He's been a major factor as far as I'm concerned."
In 2005, Fielder returned home to Melbourne, sighting family as a key factor.
It is unknown if his last game was played in South Australia or whether her returned to football in Melbourne.
