Geoff Barrowcliffe (18 October 1931 26 September 2009) was a professional footballer who played as a fullback in The Football League for Derby County, and also played for several non-league clubs.

Barrowcliffe began his career at non-league Ilkeston Town, before being signed by Derby in October 1950. He spent the next 16 years at the Baseball Ground, and played 475 league games for the Rams. He also scored 37 goals for the club, most of them from the penalty spot. He left Derby at the end of the 1965-66, and joined Boston United, where he played 41 games and scored 11 goals. He later played for Heanor Town, Moor Green Colliery, Kimberley Town and Long Eaton United and managed Kimberley Town and Radford.

Barrowcliffe died in Ilkeston on 26 September 2009, a few weeks before his 78th birthday. He had been suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Minute silences were observed before both Derby County's Championship game against Sheffield Wednesday on October 3 and a friendly between Derby and Ilkeston Town on October 5.
