Clive Richardson (born 3 November 1932) is a former cricketer who played first-class cricket for Orange Free State in South Africa from 1950 to 1965.

A right-handed opening batsman, Clive Richardson played his first matches for Orange Free State in the 1950-51 season, but did not establish himself in the team until 1954-55. He was then a fixture in the team until the end of the 1962-63 season.[1]

He was usually one of the most reliable batsmen in one of the weaker Currie Cup teams. He also captained Orange Free State from 1957-58 to 1961-62. Against Transvaal B in 1959-60 he scored 258, a record score for Orange Free State; he and Des Schonegevel added 280 for the third wicket, setting a Currie Cup third-wicket record.[2]
