Francis Tierney (born 10 September 1975) is a retired English professional footballer who played as a midfielder, most notably for Doncaster Rovers where he is affectionately known among fans as 'Sir' Francis Tierney for scoring the golden goal in the 2003 conference play-off final against Dagenham & Redbridge at Stoke's Britannia Stadium.

According to former Liverpool F.C. legend Robbie Fowler in his 2005 autobiography, Tierney was on the verge of signing for Liverpool as a youngster, but unfortunately suffered a serious injury and the deal was vetoed at the last minute. Fowler described Tierney as a "brilliant player...better than most of the other lads in the schoolboys team including myself".
