Arthur Emmett (1869 – 12 November 1935), the third of six children for Tom and Grace Emmett.

Emmett was a medium pace bowler who played three first-class matches for Leicestershire in 1902. He returned his best figures of 3-48 against London County at Aylestone Road, Leicester, where his victims included the former Australian captain, Billy Murdoch. His third and final appearance was at Lord's against MCC.

He died on 12 November 1935 in Evington, Leicestershire.

Emmett's father, Tom, captained Yorkshire between 1878 and 1882, and played seven Test matches for England, including the inaugural Test match in 1877.
