John S. Barton (born 24 October 1953 in Birmingham) is an English former professional footballer. He played professionally, as a full-back, for Everton and Derby County before moving into non-league football and management.
Barton began his career with Stourbridge, moving to Worcester City in 1976. He helped Worcester to the Southern League First Division North title in 1976-77, and began to attract interest from a number of higher level clubs. His final game for Worcester came in 1979 in their FA Cup win against Plymouth Argyle, Barton leaving the following week to join First Division Everton for a then record non-league fee of £25,000.
In 1983 Barton joined Derby County where he spent two years before joining Kidderminster Harriers, winning the FA Trophy in 1987. He later became assistant manager at Kidderminster with Graham Allner and worked in a similar role at Nuneaton Borough before becoming Nuneaton manager.
