John Binns (31 March 1870 – 8 December 1934)[1] was an English cricketer, who played one first-class match for Yorkshire in 1898.[1]

Born in Woodhouse Carr, Leeds, Yorkshire, England, Binns was a lower order right-handed batsman and a wicket-keeper, and was called up for the match against Leicestershire at Grace Road, Leicester, after the regular Yorkshire wicket-keeper, David Hunter, was injured in the previous match against Nottinghamshire at Headingley.

Binns made four runs in his only innings, and stumped three Leicestershire batsmen.[1] But Hunter's more regular deputy, Arthur Bairstow, was called in for the following game and Binns did not play first-class cricket again.

He died in Leeds in December 1934.
