Ernest Harvey Perry (16 January 1908–23 October 1996) was an English cricketer who played ten first-class games for Worcestershire between 1933 and 1946. He also appeared in the Minor Counties Championship for Staffordshire between 1926 and 1946.[1]

Perry's highest score in first-class cricket was the 46 he made near the end of his career, against Glamorgan in 1946,[2] although in 1934 he had scored 157 for Staffordshire against Cheshire at Stoke-on-Trent.[3] His best first-class bowling return was the 5-42 he claimed in the first innings against Leicestershire at Kidderminster in 1933.[4]
