Thomas Clark Fisher "Tommy" Johnson (19 August 1900 28 January 1973 in Dalton-in-Furness, Lancashire) was an English football player who played as either a centre forward or an inside forward. He started his professional career at Manchester City in 1919, and represented the club throughout the 1920s. Known for his powerful left foot shot, Johnson holds the record for the most goals scored by a Manchester City player in a single season, with 38 goals in 1928 29. He played for Manchester City in the 1926 FA Cup Final, and was a member of the City side which won the Second Division in 1927.

Johnson signed for Everton in 1930, acting as a foil for the prolific centre-forward Dixie Dean. In four seasons at Everton Johnson won the Second Division, the First Division and the FA Cup, before finishing his professional career with a short spell at Liverpool.
