John James Bagshaw (25 December 1885 25 August 1966) was an English football player who spent the majority of his career with Derby County. He also represented the English national side. He was a defender who could play anywhere along the half-back line.

Bagshaw was born in Derby, and went on to represent his home town club, joining in October 1906. His career with the club was split by the First World War, during which all league football was suspended. Bagshaw did however represent Notts County in war-time friendlies. He continued his career with Derby after the end of war and in 1919 he won his sole full cap for England. He also played an unofficial game for England in a "Victory International".

He left Derby in February 1920, having won two Second Division titles in his time with the club. He joined Notts County and subsequently moved to Watford for £200 in May 1921. He played 14 games for the club, all in the league.

In 1922 he joined Ilkeston United on a free transfer, and later played for Grantham. After retiring from playing he worked as a scout for Nottingham Forest, Notts County and Coventry City, as well as being on Forest's training staff during the Second World War. He died in Nottingham, aged 80.
