Ken Albiston (born 11 November 1926) is a former Australian rules footballer who played for Richmond and Melbourne in the VFL.

The younger brother of Hawthorn forward Alec Albiston,[1] Ken played six seasons with Richmond before moving to Melbourne. He played in Melbourne's 1954 Grand Final loss to Footscray.

It was unusual in these days, for footballers to kick left and right footed, but Albiston learned to kick left footed while recovering from an injury to his right foot.
