George Henry Camsell (November 27, 1902 - March 7, 1966) was an English football player, most notably for Middlesbrough.

He was born in Framwellgate Moor, Durham City in 1902 and played for Durham City before signing for Middlesbrough in 1925. Between 1924 and 1939, Camsell scored 418 goals in 325 games (including 345 league goals, the fifth-highest English total of all-time). The Middlesbrough club record of 59 goals in one season is his.

His goals included 24 hat-tricks for the club.
