Eric Lissenden (born 1 January 1972) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with North Melbourne in the Australian Football League (AFL).

Lissenden first came to North Melbourne via the 1989 National Draft, from Neerim-Neerim South.[1] He was a key position forward and finished as the leading goalkicker in the Under 19s league for the 1990 season but didn't get to make a senior appearance.[2] He instead made his way to Essendon, in the 1992 Mid-Season Draft. At Essendon he also failed to appear at AFL level but was given a second chance by North Melbourne in the 1995 National Draft, while playing for Warragul Industrials.[3] He finally made his AFL debut in round 14 of the 1996 season in a win over Carlton at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and played his only other senior game the following round against Collingwood.[4]
