Alan Frederick Fletcher (28 October 1917 – 1984) was an English professional footballer. He played in the Football League for Bournemouth and Crewe Alexandra.

Fletcher joined Blackpool in January 1937,[1] later joining Port Vale[citation needed] without appearing for either side. He moved to Bournemouth, playing twelve times during the 1938–39 season.[1] He joined Bristol Rovers in 1939,[1] playing all three games before World War II stopped League football in England.

He joined Crewe Alexandra in September 1947, but made just one appearance before joining Mossley as player-coach.[1] He left Mossley to become player-coach with Irish side Sligo Rovers at the start of the 1949–50 season.[3] He returned to Mossley as player-manager in August 1950.[2] Mossley struggled in the Cheshire League under Fletcher and he was sacked in May 1951.[2]
