Terence "Terry" Cameron Medwin (born 25 September 1932 in Swansea) is a former Welsh international footballer who played as a winger.

He made his debut for his home-town team Swansea Town in 1951-52 and went on to make 148 Football League appearances for the Swans.

Medwin moved to Tottenham Hotspur for £25,000 in May 1956, and played there until 1963 when a broken leg forced his early retirement. During this period he scored 72 goals in 215 matches in all competitions and helped the club win The Double in 1961, and he also appeared for them in the 1962 FA Cup Final.

He also represented Wales in the 1958 FIFA World Cup, scoring the game-winning goal in the first round play-off which sent Wales to the quarterfinals. In total he earned 30 caps and scored 6 goals for Wales from 1953 to 1963.

After his playing career ended, he coached at Fulham and was assistant manager to John Toshack at Swansea. In 1971 he was the trainer of a Wales XI side that toured Asia and Oceania, and which was managed by Dave Bowen.
