John "Jack" Swann (born 10 July 1893 in Easington, died 1990) was an English football player. During his career, Swann played for Leeds United, Huddersfield Town, Watford and Queens Park Rangers. He appeared in the 1920 FA Cup Final for Huddersfield. At Leeds, he helped the team win the Division 2 title, and went on to make over 100 appearances.

When Jack was 89 years old he attended the centenary FA Cup Final at Wembley as a VIP because he was the oldest surviving footballer from an FA Cup Final.
