Roger Doughty (1868 19 December 1914) was a Welsh association footballer who played as an outside left for Druids before joining Newton Heath in June 1886. He was part of the Heathens' team that joined the Football Alliance in 1889, but left in 1892. He returned for one season in 1896 97.

Although he was born in Cannock Chase, Staffordshire, Doughty played for the Welsh national team. He made his debut in a match against Ireland in March 1888, a match in which his brother Jack also played. Wales won the match 11 0, with the Doughty brothers scoring six of the goals between them; Roger scored two of the goals, Jack scored four.

He died in Manchester on 19 December 1914.
