Alan Kenneth Armitage (born 25 January 1930) is a former English cricketer. Armitage was a right-handed batsman who occasionally fielded as a wicket-keeper. He was born at Nottingham, Nottinghamshire.

Armitage made his first-class debut for Nottinghamshire against Warwickshire in the 1950 County Championship. He played a further match that season against Hampshire. In 1951, he made a single first-class appearance for his home county against Oxford University, where incidentally he himself was also studying. In that same season he made two first-class appearances for the university, against the Free Foresters and Leicestershire. In the match against the Free Foresters he scored his only first-class century, making 155 runs in the university's first-innings, while in their second-innings he followed this up with an unbeaten 57.[1] Two appearances in July in the 1951 County Championship against Somerset and Yorkshire were to be his final first-class appearances.[2] Playing against Yorkshire, he was part of a Fred Trueman hat-trick, with the then future England Test cricketer taking the wickets of Reg Simpson, Armitage and Peter Harvey.[3] Overall, Armitage scored 348 runs in first-class cricket, which came at an average of 34.80.
