Clarence Parfitt (born 16 July 1944 in Bermuda) is a former Bermudian and Scottish cricketer. He was a left-handed batsman and left-arm medium pace bowler. He is reputed to be the greatest bowler that Bermuda has produced. He started his career in his native Bermuda, playing one first-class match against New Zealand in 1972, taking five wickets in New Zealand's only innings. He also represented Bermuda in the 1979 ICC Trophy.

He later settled in Scotland and would go on to play for the Scottish cricket team on twelve occasions, including nine List A matches, between 1988 and 1990, making his debut against Derbyshire. He is now a Development Officer for Cricket Scotland, and was inducted into Bermuda's sporting hall of fame in 2004.
