Kelvin D. Moore (born 15 August 1950) is a former Australian rules footballer who played for the Hawthorn Football Club in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Moore was one of the best full-backs of his era and played in three Hawthorn premierships during his 300-game career between 1970 and 1984.[1]

In 2005 Moore was inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame.[2] He won the club's best and fairest award in 1979, was named at full-back in the Hawthorn Team of the Twentieth Century[3] and was an inaugural member of the Hawthorn's Hall of Fame.[4] He was considered unlucky by many not to be selected at full-back in the AFL Team of the Century.[5]

After retiring from the VFL he played for the Frankston Football Club in the Victorian Football Association (VFA), often as a half-forward.[6] He was later a chairman of selectors for Frankston, St Kilda and Hawthorn,[7] a Hawthorn board member and an assistant coach for Hawthorn under Peter Schwab.[8]
