Adam Brian Lockwood (born 26 October 1981 in Wakefield, West Yorkshire) is an English football defender, currently playing for Doncaster Rovers.

Lockwood began his career as a trainee with Reading, after being released as a youth player by Leeds United. He turned professional in August 1999, but failed to break into the Reading first team and in 2000 joined Maidenhead United to gain first team experience. In February 2001 he joined Forest Green Rovers on loan until the end of the season. In September 2001 he joined Yeovil Town on loan, a month later making the move permanent on a free transfer.

He was a member of the side that won the FA Trophy in May 2002 and helped Yeovil to the Conference and League Two titles. He struggled with injuries in the 2004 05 season, but signed a new one-year contract in August 2005. However, he struggled to re-establish himself and in November 2005, joined Westcountry rivals Torquay United on loan, returning to Yeovil in January 2006.

He moved to Doncaster Rovers in July 2006. The main reason for leaving Yeovil was cited as being because he wished to move back up North . He was perhaps a bit of a surprise package when signed by Doncaster at the beginning of the 2006/2007 season. Despite other higher profile names joining the club at the same time (such as Kevin Horlock and Bruce Dyer), he has managed to become arguably the best of the season's signings. He is a regular first team player when fit and has formed an integral part of the Rovers defence. He usually plays centre back, but can play as right back when required.

Lockwood committed his future to the club by signing a 2-year extension to his contract at Rovers in the summer of 2010.
