Alf Arrowsmith (born 11 December 1942 in Ashton-under-Lyne, Lancashire - died May 2005) was an English footballer.

Arrowsmith began his career in non-league football with Ashton United before signing for Liverpool in 1960 for £1500. Although he made his debut for the club the following year it was during the 1963-64 season that he really came to prominence, scoring fifteen goals in 20 league games. However a bad injury suffered in the 1964 FA Charity Shield derailed Arrowsmith's career and he never recaptured the same form again, leaving to join Bury in 1968, before finishing his career at Rochdale and Macclesfield Town.

After a short illness he died in May 2005.
