Nicholas "Ned" Richardson (26 May 1886 – 19 January 1929) was an Australian rules footballer who played with Fitzroy, Richmond and Essendon in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Richardson, a half back from Beverley, had two stints in the VFL.[1] He started out at Fitzroy but could only manage two appearances.[2] When he returned to the league in 1913, at Richmond, he immediately became a regular member of the side, with 16 games for the year.[2] He switched clubs during the 1915 VFL season but then had to sit out of league football for two years, as Essendon went into a war imposed recess.[3] He resumed at Essendon in 1918 and was one of only two players from his club to appear in all 14 rounds.[2]
