Henry Hall (born c. 1948) is a Scottish former football player and manager.

The peak of Hall's career as a player was when he played for St Johnstone during the early 1970s, when Willie Ormond was manager. During this time they came third in the Scottish Football League and reached a Scottish League Cup Final. Henry made his name at Stirling Albion, and later served Dundee United and Forfar Athletic. He also managed Forfar and Montrose.[6]

He taught physical education (PE) at Falkirk High School in the early 1970s, Kirkton High School in the late 1970s and at Rockwell High School (Dundee) in the 1980s. Hall worked as a youth team coach for St Johnstone between 2000 and 2002. He was made redundant in 2002 as the club cut costs after they were relegated from the Scottish Premier League.
