Ian Arthur Wolstenholme (born 12 January 1943) is an English former amateur footballer who played as a goalkeeper in the Football League for York City, and in non-League football for Sheffield, Enfield and Slough Town.[1][2]

He played for Enfield in the 1967 FA Amateur Cup Final, saving a last-minute penalty in a 0-0 draw. Enfield won the replay.[3] He was capped twice by the England national amateur team in friendly matches against Denmark and Iceland in August 1971.[4] After retiring, he managed the Harlow Town team that reached the fourth round of the FA Cup in 1979–80.[2]
