Harold Alexander De Barbizon Sloan (25 August 1882 – 21 January 1917) was an Irish soccer player at the beginning of the 20th century.

Sloan represented Bohemians during his career in the Irish League. A classy forward, he was one of the main stars in the early Bohemian history. He scored the very first goal ever at Dalymount Park in a 4-2 win over Shelbourne on 7 September 1901.

He won 8 full international caps for Ireland and once scored a hat-trick for them against Wales in a 4-4 draw in April 1906.[1]

Sloan served as a second lieutenant in the Royal Garrison Artillery in the British Army and was killed in action during World War I on 21 January 1917.[2] He is buried at the Guards Cemetery at Combles.[1]
