David Ripley (born 13 September 1966, Leeds, Yorkshire) is a former England cricketer who played for Northamptonshire in county cricket from 1984-2001. He took 678 catches and 85 stumpings. In his 307 first class games he scored 8693 runs at 28.40 with nine centuries. He attended Royds comprehensive school where he excelled in football also. He played youth cricket for Carlton Cricket Club, and for Leeds Loe Lumb and Yorkshire Colts at representative level, winning his Yorkshire cap at age 14.

Ripley was appointed vice-captain of Northamptonshire in 1999 and became captain in his final season, replacing Matthew Hayden. In 1998 he put on 401 for the fifth wicket with Mal Loye against Glamorgan. To date they are the only Northamptonshire pair to ever put on 400 runs. His most prolific year with the gloves came in 1988 with 81 dismissals. In the same year he took six dismissals in an innings against Sussex.

Ripley is currently the first team coach at Northamptonshire replacing David Capel in July 2012. In 2013 Ripley led Northants to promotion from County Championship Division 2 and the Friends Life T20.
