Norman T. Christie (born November 24, 1911 in Jarrow, Tyne and Wear) was a professional footballer, who played for Bishop Auckland, Huddersfield Town & Blackburn Rovers.

He was a centre-half (central defender). He used to tell how he once jumped up with the opposing centre-forward to head the ball; he jumped with his mouth open, and came down with a mouthful of the forward's skin from the back of his neck.

After his retirement, Christie lived in Middlecave Road, Malton, in North Yorkshire.
