Herbert 'Bert' Sutton (15 April 1901 – 17 August 1981) was an Australian rules footballer who played with South Melbourne and Hawthorn in the VFL during the 1920s.

Sutton, who came to South Melbourne from Williamstown, was used mostly as a flanker. He left South Melbourne in 1924 to captain-coach St Patricks in the Ovens and Murray Assoc to the premiership. He moved on 1925 to captain-coach North Launceston for a season and steered them to a premiership.[1] After another stint at South Melbourne, Sutton crossed to Hawthorn in 1928 as captain-coach but the club failed to win a game all year.
