Almeric George "Almer" Hall (12 November 1912 7 November 1994) was an English footballer and manager.

Born in Hove, England Hall, a striker, began his professional career in 1930 with his local club Brighton & Hove Albion but before making any appearances for the Sussex club he moved to Tottenham Hotspur. He later played for Southend United, Bradford City, where his one appearance was later expunged from the records after the outbreak of the Second World War, and West Ham United, where he made 50 Football League appearances before moving to non-league Margate in 1950 as player-manager.

He played for the Kent club until 1953, when he retired from playing to concentrate on management, and remained the club's manager until 1970, his twenty year reign making him by far the club's longest serving manager. He led the team to a host of regional cup finals, as well as taking them into the rounds proper of the FA Cup on eleven occasions, but was not able to bring them any significant success in league competition.

After leaving Margate he had a spell as a scout for Luton Town.
