Richard Yeabsley (born 2 November 1973), an alumnus of Haberdashers' Aske's Boys' School, is a former first-class cricketer.

Son of former Devon player, Doug Yeabsley, and brother of fellow first-class player Michael, Richard was a sharp medium-pace bowler and useful batsman. During his brief career, he represented Oxford University and Middlesex, playing a total of 19 first class matches and making five List A appearances. Yeabsley quit the game, aged just 22, with a career first-class bowling average of 32.77.

His best bowling performance came in the 1994 Varsity match. He took 6–54 in the first innings, and 4–50 in the second, giving him his only five wicket innings and ten wicket match hauls.[1]
