John "Jack" Dorrington (May 1881 - 9 January 1944) was an English professional footballer who spent his entire professional career as a goalkeeper at Small Heath, for which he made over 100 appearances in the Football League.

A native of Smethwick, then an urban district in Staffordshire, Jack Dorrington took over in goal from Nat Robinson in 1907 08, but remained undisputed first choice for only a couple of seasons. Injury forced his retirement in or around 1913.

Jack Dorrington died in the Birmingham suburb of Handsworth at the age of 62.
