Henry Templeton (born 25 June 1963) is a Scottish former professional association footballer. Templeton played as a forward for Airdrie, Ayr United, Clydebank, Queen of the South and Frickley Athletic. He is the father of fellow footballer David Templeton.
Henry Templeton is best remembered for his time at the club at which he played most, Ayr United. There he formed part of a potent attacking trio along with Tommy Walker and John Sludden. Led by ex Scotland manager Ally MacLeod, in 1987–88 Ayr were Second Division champions and Scotland's highest league scorers. in 2007 Henry was inducted into the Ayr United Hall of Fame.
Not having led a healthy lifestyle, by the time Templeton joined Queen of the South his talents were receding as were Queens who were approaching the end of a long decline before the Norman Blount takeover. Again playing for MacLeod, Templeton's time at Queens is best remembered for the emergence of prolific striker Andy Thomson.
Away from playing
Templeton's hero was Rangers and Scotland winger Davie Cooper. It was after Cooper that he named one of his sons David Cooper Templeton, who followed Henry into the professional ranks. David played for Rangers and like Henry is a tricky, skilful attacking player.
