Kevin Lock (born 27 December 1953 in Plaistow, Essex) is an English former professional footballer who played as a central defender.

Lock played for West Ham United, making his debut against Sheffield United on 29 February 1972. He took over the number 6 shirt from Bobby Moore, who left for Fulham in 1974.

He played against Moore in the 1975 FA Cup Final victory before joining Fulham himself in 1978. He won four caps for the England under-23 side.[2] His last game for the Irons was on 17 September 1977, a 2-3 away win against Bristol City.

He later joined Southend United, then managed by Moore, where he played ten League games. He stayed with the Essex club as a coach once he'd retired from playing. He remained with Southend when David Webb replaced Moore as manager, and followed Webb to Chelsea in 1993 and Brentford from 1993 to 1998,[3] which was his last job in football.[4]
