John William Crosbie Goold (born 27 June 1941) is a former Australian rules footballer who represented Carlton in the Victorian Football League (VFL) during the 1960s.

Educated at Melbourne Grammar School and recruited from Healesville, Goold was as a half back and played in two Carlton premiership sides. The first in 1968 saw him line up at centre half back and the second came two years later in the 1970 VFL Grand Final which would be his last league game. He represented Victoria at interstate football during his career, including 1966 when he wore the Big V at the Hobart Carnival and earned All-Australian selection as well as finishing second in the Tassie Medal voting. He also polled well in that year's Brownlow Medal, finishing in eighth place.

A fashion designer during his football career, after he retired he took up farming and horse-breeding.
