Richard Allsop (10 June 1849 – 20 March 1908) was an English first class cricketer who played for Derbyshire County Cricket Club between 1872 and 1874.

Allsop was born at Wirksworth, Derbyshire, the son of Samuel Allsop, a journeyman joiner and his wife Ann who lived in the Market Place.[1] By 1871 he was a joiner himself, living with the family at St John Street.[2] In 1870 he played cricket for Wirksworth Cricket Club and in 1871 for Burton Cricket Club. He made his debut for Derbyshire in the 1872 season against Lancashire.[3] In the 1873 season he only played for the club in a miscellaneous match against Nottinghamshire. In the 1874 season he achieved his highest score of 33 against Lancashire and completed his first class career in a match against Kent. He also played in Derbyshire's extra matches against Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire and United South of England.

Allsop played five innings in three first class matches with an average of 8.40 and a highest score of 33.[4]
