Cyril Robinson (born 4 March 1929 in Nottingham) is an English former professional footballer.

Robinson's professional career was relatively short, spanning just a decade, four years of which was spent at Blackpool. He was part of the Seasiders team that won the FA Cup in 1953. The FA Cup final was only his second start of the season, and he is, as of September 2007, the only surviving member of Blackpool's winning team, after the death of Bill Perry.

He made his debut for the Tangerines on November 3, 1951, in a 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion. His two league goals for the club came later that month.

After leaving Blackpool, Robinson went on to play for Northwich Victoria, Bradford Park Avenue and Southport. At the age of 30 he moved into non-league football, and played for seven more clubs: Buxton, Lancaster City, Toronto City, Fleetwood, Blackpool Mechanics, Hellas and Australian club Newcastle Croatia.
