Alfred Ackroyd (29 August 1858 – 3 October 1927) was an English amateur first-class cricketer, who played for Yorkshire County Cricket Club. He presently holds the distinction of being the first, alphabetically listed, player in Yorkshire CCC's history.
Ackroyd was born in Oakroyd Hall, Birkenshaw, Leeds, Yorkshire, England. He was a right-handed batsman and a right-arm fast bowler. He made two appearances for Yorkshire, and averaged 15 with the bat, and 10.66 with the ball taking three wickets. A fast bowler with a fierce break-back, his action was strongly criticised in Lillywhite's Companion for 1880.
