Andrew Lorimar "Andy" Lochhead (born 9 March 1941) is a retired professional footballer who played as a striker. He was a tall, strong man, with great ability in the air leading to him scoring many headed goals.

Lochhead was born in Milngavie, Stirlingshire, Scotland. He started his career at Burnley and made his first team debut in 1960. He remains the only player to have scored five goals for the Clarets on two occasions.
