Gordon Abbott (26 September 1914 - 19 April 1986)[1] was an Australian rules footballer who played with Geelong and Essendon in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Debuting with Geelong in 1936, Abbott spent three years with the club which included being a member of Geelong's 1937 premiership team and kicking two goals in the Grand Final. He played mostly as a ruckman and a forward. After a period out of the VFL he returned to the league in 1941 and joined Essendon where he would play in two further premierships, in 1942 and 1946.
