Ron Lord (born 25 August 1929) was an Australian international football (soccer) goalkeeper during the 1950s, appearing for the host nation in the 1956 Olympic Games staged in Melbourne.

Lord played well in the defeat of the Japanese side, but the Australians were well-defeated by India where Neville D'Souza scored the first and, so far, only hat-trick by an Asian football in either a FIFA World Cup or Olympic Games tournament.

Lord initially played for Australia in the early-1950s taking over duties between-the-posts from the famous Norman Conquest.
