Peter Michael Clough (born 17 August 1956 in Sydney, New South Wales) was an Australian cricketer, who played for Tasmania and Western Australia.

He was a right-handed batsman and right arm fast-medium bowler who represented Tasmania from 1980 until 1984, and played for Western Australia until 1986. He was a useful bowler, who could be relied upon for Tasmania, at time when the struggling state side was trying to establish itself as a competitive team.

His gritty bowling performances for Tasmania in the dark period of the early 1980s saw him added as a member of the state's elite Cricket Hall of Fame.
