Bryan Orritt (born 22 February 1937) is a Welsh former professional footballer who played as an inside forward or wing half. He made more than 200 appearances in the Football League, and was capped three times for Wales at under-23 level.

Born in Caernarfon, Orritt began his football career with local club Llanfair PG before joining Bangor City. In 1956 he joined English First Division club Birmingham City, for whom he went on to play in the finals of the 1960 and 1961 Inter-Cities Fairs Cups, becoming one of the first Welsh footballers to take part in European competition.

In 1962 he moved to Middlesbrough, where he became the first substitute ever used by the club.

He emigrated to South Africa, playing for and later managing Southern Suburbs F.C., and coached black youngsters in Soweto.
