John S. Douglas[2] (born 13 March 1961) is an English former footballer who played as a forward for Darlington in the Football League.

Douglas was born in Stockton-on-Tees, County Durham.[1] He played non-league football for Stockton before joining Darlington in January 1986.[1] He made his debut on 31 March 1986, in the starting eleven for the visit to Rotherham United in the Third Division; Darlington won 2–1. He played in three more matches in what remained of the 1985–86 season: two league starts and a substitute appearance in the Associate Members' Cup.[3]
