Stanley Michael "Stan" Molan (26 September 1893 – 27 June 1943)[1] was an Australian rules footballer who played with Fitzroy in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Molan was already 24 when he started his career at Fitzroy.[2] He was handy in front of goals in his first two seasons, with his 24 goals in 1918 bettered by only one teammate, Jimmy Freake.[2] He kicked another 22 goals in 1919 but from then spent most of his time as a defender.[2]

Playing in a successful era meant that Molan was able to make 10 appearances in finals football.[2] He was Fitzroy's centre half-back in their 1922 premiership team and played in the same position when they lost the grand final a year later.[3]

He was a four time VFL representative.[4]
