Burt Tom Cockley (born 3 April 1986) is an Australian cricketer who has played for New South Wales and Western Australia. He is a right-handed batsman and a right-arm fast bowler.[1]

Born and raised in Newcastle New South Wales, Cockley attended school at Callaghan College. As a young cricketer he played for the Waratah-Mayfield District Cricket Club. At the age of 17 he made his First Grade debut for Waratah-Mayfield. After being selected in the NSW Country Colts and NSW Country sides, Cockley moved to Sydney to play for Randwick Petersham Cricket Club in the Sydney Grade Cricket Competition.

After only one season in Sydney, Cockley was picked for the NSW State side. He debuted in First Class cricket for NSW against Tasmania at Hobart in the 2007/08 season. In February 2009 he was selected by the Kings XI Punjab franchise of the Indian Premier League for the 2009 season and in November 2009 he was added to Australia's injury-ravaged squad in India, as a replacement for Peter Siddle.

He moved to Western Australia in 2012 and played his first matches for the state team early in 2013.
