Albert John Young Hopkins (3 May 1874 in Young, New South Wales – 25 April 1931 in North Sydney) was an Australian cricketer and Penrith bee-farmer who played in 20 Tests between 1902 and 1909.

In the second Test at Lord's in 1902 under captain Joe Darling, Hopkins opened the bowling for Australia with Ernie Jones. Hopkins took the first two wickets of the English team being the famed batsmen CB Fry and Ranjitsinhji, both for ducks. These were however the only two wickets he took in the match in which he closed at 2-18.
