Arthur Clarence Hillier Chandler was a professional footballer in the 1920s and 1930s. He is most famous at Leicester City, where he is the club's all time record goal scorer, with 273 goals, though he also played for Queens Park Rangers and Notts County.

As well as being Leicester's record goalscorer, Chandler also holds the club records for being Leicester's oldest goalscorer (39 years and 34 days), scoring the most goals in a single top flight season (34, a record which he achieved twice), scoring the most top flight goals for the club (203), scoring the most hat-tricks or greater (17), the most consecutive matches scored in (8 matches between 6 December 1924-10 January 1925) and thee joint record for the most goals in a single game (6 goals vs Portsmouth on 20 October 1928). Remarkably, despite his goalscoring feats, Chandler never scored a penalty. He took 2 penalties in his career, both of which were saved.

He was part of the Leicester side which finished in the club's highest ever league finishes of First Division runners-up in 1928-29 and in third place in 1927-28.
