Dennis Perrior Hunt (born 8 September 1937) is an English former Association football player and manager.

A defender, Hunt joined Gillingham in 1958 after being discovered whilst playing football for the army.[1] He went on to make over 320 appearances for the Kent club in a ten-year stay at Priestfield Stadium[2] before moving on to Brentford in 1968.[3]

After just one season with Brentford he became player-manager of Folkestone Invicta[3] and later managed Ashford Town and Margate.[4]
