Anthony John Parry 8 September 1945 – 23 November 2009 was an English former footballer who made nearly 200 appearances in the Football League playing as a central defender for Hartlepool United, Derby County and Mansfield Town

Parry was born in Burton upon Trent He was Brian Clough's first signing as manager of Hartlepool He was a mainstay of the side which won promotion from the Fourth Division in the 1967–68 season, and won the club's inaugural Player of the Year award

In 1972 the club was on the brink of going out of business, needing to sell a player to survive, when Clough, by then manager of Derby County, bid £2,500 for the player It is usually regarded as a philanthropic gesture by Clough albeit using Derby's money as Parry made few appearances for Derby before moving on to Mansfield Town

He later played non-league football for Gresley Rovers, where he was Player of the Year in the 1982–83 season

In February 2009, Parry made a triumphant return to the North East as guest of honour at Hartlepool United's centenary dinner Barry Butlin, Secretary & Treasurer of Derby County Former Players' Association, said: "It is fitting that Tony's fans at Hartlepool and in the North East had the opportunity to honour him at the 'Centenary' celebrations, and Tony was delighted to be greeted by his telly idol Jeff Stelling"

Parry died suddenly on 23 November 2009, following a short battle with pneumonia
