Alexander ("Alec") Coxon (18 January 1916 – 22 January 2006) is a former cricketer who played for Yorkshire County Cricket Club. He also played one Test match for England.

Coxon was born in in Huddersfield, Yorkshire. The Second World War delayed Coxon's first-class debut for Yorkshire to 1945, when he was 29. Coxon was an aggressive fast-medium bowler who only ever made the verges of the England Test squad. He played for England once — against Australia in 1948 at Lord's. There were rumours of an argument with Denis Compton, and his prickly nature was later attested to by Brian Close. Coxon retired after the 1950 season allegedly in umbridge at his non selection for the forthcoming Ashes tour and moved to Durham. He also played Association Football for Bradford Park Avenue in wartime matches. He kept up a keen interest in club cricket till the end.

Coxon was the namesake for the renowned Jamaican record producer Clement Dodd, whose boyhood cricket prowess earned him the name by which he is better known, "Coxsone."
