Albert "Bert" Maddlethwaite (15 May 1932 - 13 March 2007) was an English footballer.

He began his career at Manchester United in 1947 as a 15-year-old. He spent four years, the last year of which was on a professional contract at Old Trafford, but he made no appearances in the first team.

In 1951 he moved across Lancashire to join Blackpool. In two years at the seaside, Maddlethwaite made eight appearances and scored one goal. His time at Blackpool was blighted by injury; he was not even present at Wembley for the Matthews Cup Final due to injury.

Later in 1953, Maddlethwaite made the move out of full-time football when he joined Stalybridge Celtic. His stay at Bower Fold was one that lasted for seven years before repeated injuries meant that the Cheshire County League was now beyond him.

Maddlethwaite joined Glosssop North End of the Lancashire Combination in 1960. He spent two years with the Hillmen. He finished playing competitive football when he became a publican.

Over the next twenty-five years he worked at several pubs across the north of England.
