Pat Heard (born 17 March 1960 in Kingston upon Hull) is a retired English football defender or midfielder.

A product of the youth system at Everton, Heard made only a handful of appearances for the club before moving on to Aston Villa. He failed to hold down a regular spot there either but nonetheless gained a European Cup medal after being named as a non-playing substitute for the 1982 European Cup Final. He left Villa in January 1983 to move to Sheffield Wednesday, before subsequently appearing for Newcastle United, where he was manager Jack Charlton's first signing, and Middlesbrough.

In 1986 he joined his hometown club Hull City and was a first teamer for two seasons before leaving to play for Rotherham United and then Cardiff City, where his lacklustre contributions were less than appreciated by the supporters. His career in the Football League came to a close with a brief spell back at Hull.

Following his departure from Hull City, Heard briefly continued his career with the Brunei M-League Team before embarking on a variety of careers including as a publican in both Hull and Chesterfield, a summariser for 96.4FM BRMB, a stage hypnotist and most recently an Approved Driving Instructor.
