Derek Dooley, MBE (13 December 1929 5 March 2008) was an English football player, manager and chairman. He lived in Sheffield for the majority of his life taking roles at both Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United.

He started his football league career with Lincoln City in 1946, but made only two appearances for them before joining Sheffield Wednesday the following year. In his time at Hillsborough he was a prolific goalscorer for Wednesday. Between 1950 and 1953 he scored 62 goals in 61 league games for the Owls, along with one goal from his two FA Cup appearances. His career was cut short when an infected leg had to be amputated following a serious fracture in his last match for the club.
