Harold John Dickinson (26 November 1911 – 2 June 1997) was a Welsh cricketer. Dickinson was a right-handed batsman who bowled right-arm fast-medium. He was born at Barry, Glamorgan. He was educated in his early years at Barry County Boys School.

Dickinson made his first-class debut for Glamorgan in 1934 against Cambridge University. From 1934 to 1935, he made 7 first-class appearances, with his final first-class appearance for the county coming against Warwickshire in the 1935 County Championship.[1] In his 7 first-class matches, he scored 37 runs at a batting average of 5.28, with a high score of 14*. In the field he also took 3 catches[2] With the ball he took 6 wickets at a bowling average of 55.83, with best figures of 3/91.[3]

In the 1935 season, he was offered terms by Glamorgan, but due to the club's modest finances, he instead opted to join the Great Western Railway as a draughtsman.[4] Dickinson died at Hammersmith, London on 2 June 1997.
