John Ronald Crosland (November 10, 1922 – 2006) was an English professional football player. He played as a defender, and could switch from centre-half to full-back.

Born in Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, Crosland was signed by Blackpool manager Joe Smith from Ansdell Rovers during World War II. After being unable to break into the first team due to the form of Ron Suart and Harry Johnston, he made his debut on September 18, 1946, in a defeat at Brentford. He played in the next three games, before sitting out the remaining seven months of the 1946–47 campaign.

He made only two league appearances in the 1947–48, but he deputised for the injured Suart in the 1948 FA Cup Final against Manchester United, marking Reds winger Jimmy Delaney.

Despite this appearances, Crosland did not feature at all during the 1948–49 term, but made sixteen appearances in 1949–50. After veteran centre-half Eric Hayward began to succumb to injuries, Crosland became more of a fixture in Smith's teams. In addition, the England selectors capped him at "B" level in 1950 before he was given regular first-team football during 1952–53.

A series of injuries curtailed his Blackpool career, and after 64 league appearances during eight years of service he was sold to Bournemouth in 1954. He made just over one hundred league appearances for the south-coast club before finishing his career with Wisbech Town in the late 1950s.
