Tony Bircumshaw (born 8 February 1945 in Mansfield, England) is a former footballer who played in the full back position.

Bircumshaw was a product of the youth system at Notts County where his older brother Peter Bircumshaw was already a first team regular. Tony Bircumshaw made his Football League debut on 3 April 1961 for Notts County at Brentford and at 16 years and 54 days he set a record as the club's youngest player. The record remains in place to date, although he was outstripped for the all competitions record when Jermaine Pennant featured for the club in an FA Cup tie as a 15 year old.

Bircumshaw left Notts in July 1966, to move to Hartlepool United, remaining at the club until 1971. Whilst there, he was a member of the side that won promotion in the 1967-68 season.
