Peter Patrick Lorimer (born 14 December 1946 in Dundee, Scotland) is a former footballer who formed part of the much-admired and feared Leeds United team of the 1960s and 1970s.

An attacking midfielder renowned for his vicious shooting, (he has been regarded as having the hardest shot in football history) Lorimer was at the more cultured end of a Leeds United side under Don Revie which was built on a platform of out-playing and out-muscling opponents. He is currently a director on the board at Leeds, and also provides commentary on Yorkshire Radio on occasions.
