Alister MacLeod (12 November 1894 – 24 April 1982) was an English first-class cricketer who played as a right-handed batsman.

MacLeod made his first-class debut for Hampshire against the Somerset in the 1914 County Championship. MacLeod played five first-class matches in his debut season, the last of which came against Kent. It was during this season that MacLeod made his career best score of 87 runs against Essex in a match that Hampshire won by an innings and 19 runs. Due to the onset of the First World War county cricket was cancelled until 1919.

MacLeod represented the club once more in 1920 against Sussex. It would be another 15 years before MacLeod would represent Hampshire in first-class cricket.

In the 1935 County Championship MacLeod played another first-class match for the club against Leicestershire, a match that Hampshire lost by 47 runs.

MacLeod once again represented the club in the 1938 County Championship, 24 years after his debut in 1914. During the season he played three first-class matches, the last of which was against Middlesex.

In 1936 MacLeod became the secretary of the club, a post he would hold until 1939, when first-class cricket was cancelled due to the onset of the Second World War.

MacLeod died in Broomfield, Essex on 24 April 1982.
