A John "Jock" Hamilton (born 1872 in Ayr, Scotland and died October 1931 in Bristol, England) was a Scottish footballer who played as a centre half. He made over 90 Football League appearances and over 120 Southern League appearances in the years before the First World War. He was also trainer at Fulham and manager at Bristol City.
Hamilton played locally for Ayr FC. He moved south to England to Wolverhampton Wanderers where he suffered a serious injury restricting his appearances. Hamilton joined Loughborough and was ever present in their inaugural Football League season. Hamilton had spells with Derby County and Ilkeston Town. Sam Hollis signed Hamilton in summer 1897 for Bristol City prior to their first season as a professional club in the Southern League  Hamilton made his debut for Bristol City. While working for Fulham as assistant trainer, Hamilton was invited to Brazil to coach Club Athletico Paulistano. He visited São Paulo between April and July 1907 and this is apparently the first example of a Brazilian Club officially engaging the services of a trainer from Britain.
