Ian Bryson (born 26 November 1962 in Kilmarnock) is a Scottish footballer.

He began his career at Hurlford United before moving to Kilmarnock, where he spent seven years making almost 200 appearances, mostly as a midfielder.

After moving to England, he spent the next 5 years of his career at Sheffield United with whom he was promoted to the old First Division. After a brief spell at Barnsley, he joined Preston North End in 1993 on his 31st birthday, where he briefly played alongside a young David Beckham.

Bryson was appointed captain of the north west club. Although Preston lost the Third Division playoff final 4-2 to Wycombe Wanderers, Bryson himself scored with a spectacular overhead kick. Two years later he led them to the Third Division title, lifting the trophy at Deepdale in front of a capacity crowd. Bryson ended his professional league career at Rochdale, later playing for Bamber Bridge.

However, he is still remembered with great affection at Preston, one of the founding members of the Football League, where he also spent time coaching youngsters at North End's academy. Ian still lives in Preston and still plays regularly for AC Sporting in the Preston area Veterans League.
