John William Aldridge (born 18 September 1958 Liverpool, England) is a former Republic of Ireland international footballer and football manager. He was a prolific record-breaking striker best known for his productive time with Liverpool in the late 1980s, and for being the first man to have a penalty kick saved in a Wembley FA Cup Final.

Although a significant period of his career was spent in the English non-league and in Spain, his tally of 330 league goals still make him the 6th top goalscorer in the history of English league football.
