Alan Morris (born 23 August 1953) was an English cricketer. He was a right-handed batsman and a leg-break bowler. He played first-class cricket between 1974 and 1980.

His first-class debut came in the disastrous 1974 County Championship season, playing out a draw with Essex, and, for the next three years, he was a regular for the Derbyshire team. At the end of the 1977 Championship, however, he saw fewer and fewer appearances in the Derbyshire team, despite their moderately impressive showing that year, and their final league position of seventh.
