Thomas Sidney "Sid" Watson (born 12 December 1927 in Mansfield) is a retired English footballer who played in The Football League for Mansfield Town as a wing-half.

Sid Watson worked at Pleasley Colliery when he signed with Mansfield Town as an amateur in September 1948. In January 1950, he signed a professional contract with the club, but had to wait until the 1951 52 season before making his first-team debut.

Watson went on to become one of Mansfield's longest-serving players of all time. He spent 13 years at the club, and played 307 first-team games for the Stags, including 292 in league competition. He left Mansfield at the end of the 1960 61 season, and then played four seasons for non-league Ilkeston Town.

After his retirement from professional football, Watson was an employee at King's Mill Hospital in Sutton-in-Ashfield until his retirement in 1992.
