James Moffat Allan (2 April 1932 – 15 April 2005) was a Scottish cricketer. He was an all-rounder who bowled slow left-arm orthodox and batted right-handed. He played 39 first-class matches for Scotland between 1954 and 1972 as well as playing first-class cricket for Oxford University, Kent County Cricket Club and Warwickshire County Cricket Club.
Moffat was educated at Edinburgh Academy and Worcester College, Oxford. He made his first-class debut playing for Oxford University and took figures of 1/0 from seven overs. Five of his overs were bowled to Len Hutton. He dismissed Keith Miller and Ian Craig in his opening over in a game against the Australians the following week and a run was not scored against him until the 11th over of his first-class career.
Moffat took 11/123 in a match against Pakistan in 1971 and, although he never scored a century for Scotland, he made 99 against the touring New Zealanders in 1965. In 2011 he was one of the twelve initial inductees into the Scottish Cricket Hall of Fame.
