Cornelius 'Con' Britt (born 10 August 1947) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with Collingwood in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Britt, who was recruited from Golden Point in the Ballarat Football League, was a utility who was regarded as being hard at the ball.[1] He appeared in seven finals matches,[2] including the 1970 VFL Grand Final loss to Carlton where he played as a half forward flanker and kicked a goal. He was also used as a centreman and ruck-rover during his career. He retired as the age of just 26, in 1973.
