Reginald William "Reg" Tricker (born Karachi on 5 October 1904; died 1990) was an English footballer.

Though born in Karachi, then part of British India, now in Pakistan, Tricker's family moved back to England in 1908 when he was four and he grew up in Suffolk. He started his career at non-league Beccles Town before moving up to play for Luton Town and Charlton Athletic, turning professional at the latter.

In March 1927 he moved to Arsenal and made his League debut on March 19, 1927 against Everton. Tricker soon established himself at the club, with two goals in his fourth game for the club, in a North London derby match against Tottenham Hotspur on May 7, 1927. However, Tricker was not part of the side that lost the 1927 FA Cup Final against Cardiff City as he was cup-tied.

Despite his early success Tricker was one of many forwards at the club and failed to establish a place in the time during the 1927-28 and 1928-29 seasons, making just eight appearances over the two. In February 1929 he left Arsenal, having scored five goals in 12 appearances, for Clapton Orient. At Orient he served for five seasons and was the club's top scorer for three consecutive seasons between 1930-31 and 1932-33. In total he made 188 Football League appearances. After retiring from football, he became a schoolmaster becoming Head of PE at Owen's School, Islington.
