John Radford (born 22 February 1947 in Hemsworth, Yorkshire) is a former English football player.

Playing as a centre forward or right-winger, Radford spent most of his career at Arsenal, making 482 appearances and scoring 149 goals. After joining the club as an apprentice, he made his debut in 1963 and became Arsenal's youngest ever hat-trick scorer (against Wolves on January 2, 1965), at the age of 17 years and 315 days, a record that holds to this day.

Radford helped Arsenal win the 1970 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup and the FA Cup and League double in 1971. He continued to play for the club through the 1970s, although injury and the emergence of Frank Stapleton meant he was no longer a regular by the time he left Arsenal for West Ham United in 1976. After two seasons at the Hammers, Radford joined Blackburn Rovers, and then played for non-league Bishop's Stortford before retiring.

He won two England caps but didn't score in either match. As of 2005, he is Arsenal's fourth all-time top scorer.

After retiring, he became a pub landlord, and enjoyed several spells as manager of Bishop's Stortford in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
