Arnold ("Arnie") Sidebottom (born 1 April 1954 in Shawlands, Barnsley, Yorkshire, England) is a former cricketer who played for Yorkshire, who played one Test match for England. Sidebottom also had a successful professional football career for Manchester United, Huddersfield and Halifax as a central defender.

Sidebottom first played for Yorkshire in 1973, but did not win his cap till 1980. Test match cricket seemed to have passed him by when he went to South Africa as part of the rebel tour led by Graham Gooch in 1982, which also earned him a three-year Test ban. He also played for Orange Free State. After the ban ended, he was a surprise call up for the Trent Bridge Test in 1985, where he took 1 for 65 before limping off injured. Sidebottom himself admitted that his Test selection came when he was past his prime.

He continued playing for Yorkshire until 1991 and then went into coaching. He finally left Yorkshire in 2003. His son, Ryan Sidebottom, is now an effective 1st class cricketer for Nottinghamshire.
