Ian D. Nankervis (born 13 March 1944) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with Carlton in the Victorian Football League (VFL).[1]

Following his departure from Carlton, Nankervis played for Williamstown in the Victorian Football Association. He won the Division 2 Best and Fairest award (now known as the J. Field Medal) in 1968; but, this caused a dispute with the club when he tried to use it as leverage to get a better pay deal, and it resulted in his being dropped from that year's Grand Final team.[2] He later played for Dandenong.[3]
