Alfred H. "Alf" Farman (April 1869 unknown) was an English footballer who played as a forward. Born in Kings Norton, Birmingham, he played for Birmingham Excelsior, Aston Villa and Bolton Wanderers before joining Newton Heath in early 1889. He played in three friendlies before the end of the 1888 89 season, scoring a goal in each of them. He was in the Heathens' team that first joined the Football Alliance in the 1889-90 season, and finally made his competitive debut on 9 November 1889 in a 3 0 home win over Long Eaton Rangers, in which he scored a goal. At Newton Heath, which was later renamed Manchester United, he scored 53 goals in 121 appearances, before leaving in June 1895.

He played for them in their two seasons in the First Division and for one season after they were relegated to the Second Division. He also scored the first penalty in football history during the match between Newton Heath and Blackpool in the fourth qualifying round of the 1891 92 FA Cup.
