Alan Atkinson (born 20 October 1951) is a former Australian rules footballer who played in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Atkinson was recruited by Collingwood from Hamilton, and made his debut in 1970. Despite playing 134 games for the Pies, Atkinson failed to make a Grand Final appearance when opportunities arose. He was tall, but not a solidly built player. He played on the wing and at half-forward during his career. In 1980 he played six games when the Bulldogs picked him up.[1]
