Andrew John Corran (born 25 November 1936 in Norwich) was a first-class English cricketer. After starting his career at Gresham's School, Holt, (where he was also a good hockey player) and at Oxford University (where he was a cricket blue in all three of his seasons), he moved to Nottinghamshire, for whom he played between 1961 and 1965. He was the club's captain in the 1962 season.

In the 1960 Oxford and Cambridge 'Varsity match, Corran took twelve wickets for 116 runs. Also in 1960, he played for the Gentlemen in Gentlemen v Players.

A schoolmaster, he took a job in Australia in 1965 and thus ended his first-class cricket career. From 1968 until retirement he taught cricket at Cranleigh School.
