Jimmy Montgomery (born 9 October 1943 in Hendon, Sunderland, County Durham) is an English retired footballer who played as a goalkeeper. He made a record 627 appearances for his hometown club Sunderland with 537 of these appearances being in the league, after joining the club as a youngster in 1960. 
In June 2015, Montgomery was awarded the British Empire Medal for his services to football in the Queen's birthday honours list.
Montgomery featured for Sunderland in the 1973 FA Cup Final, where they beat Leeds United 1–0 to win the FA Cup for only the second time in their history. His most memorable contribution in that match was a double save from Trevor Cherry and Peter Lorimer which prevented Leeds from equalising. This is considered by many to be the greatest double save ever.
