Ernest Joseph "Joe" North (born Burton-on-Trent, 23 September 1895, died Havant, 24 August 1955) was an English professional football and cricket player.

North's early career was interrupted by World War I, where he fought in the Army, winning the Military Medal. However, during this time he guested for Sheffield United, before joining Arsenal after the war's end, in 1919, as an amateur. A centre forward, he was mainly a reserve in the side, as understudy to Henry White and Fred Pagnam. He still scored on his League debut, though, in a First Division match against Oldham Athletic on February 7, 1920. However, he could not fully break into the team, making 23 appearances (scoring six goals) in three seasons before leaving Arsenal for Reading in May 1922.

He later played for Watford, Norwich City and Gillingham. After retiring he was briefly a coach at Northfleet United. He also played cricket for Middlesex CCC and later became an umpire in the Minor Counties Championship.
