Harry Dunn is an English former football player and current football club manager. He is currently managing Whitby Town following the end of his contract as manager at Conference North side Blyth Spartans.

Dunn was born in County Durham and began with his hometown club Bishop Auckland before being quickly snapped up by Scarborough in 1975, and soon endearing himself to their supporters. With Scarborough he gained two FA Trophy winners medals, scoring in the 1977 final at Wembley against Dagenham. He made 265 appearances for Scarborough, scoring 65 goals.

He joined Blyth Spartans in 1981, winning a Northern League Championship medal before rejoining Bishop Auckland in 1983.

He was manager of Bishop Auckland until 1995 when he left to manage Blyth Spartans. However, he did not stay long at Croft Park as he was appointed as manager of Whitby Town in December 1995, staying in charge until his sacking in September 2004.[1]

He is sometimes confused with another long-standing Scarborough player called Harry Dunn, who made over 900 appearances for the club and was already at the club before Dunn joined from Bishop Auckland. To avoid confusion, the new signing was given the fictitious middle initial 'A' to differentiate between the two players. Therefore, to Scarborough fans he has always been known as Harry 'A' Dunn. It was the original Harry Dunn who managed Scarborough, in 1982 and between 1984 and 1986, and was clubman of the year in 1970 and 1974, and not Harry 'A' Dunn as it often reported.

On 8th November, 2008, his Blyth Spartans side defeated Shrewsbury Town F.C. of League 2, in the first round of the FA Cup. Blyth then went on to defeat A.F.C. Bournemouth 1-0 in a second round replay at Croft Park before losing 0-1 to Premier League outfit Blackburn Rovers on the same ground in round three, a game which Dunn refused to be moved to Newcastle United's St. James Park ground.[2].

Alongside his managerial duties for Blyth, Harry works in a caretaking capacity for a Durham nursing home.

On 27th April 2009, Blyth Spartans confirmed that the club would not be renewing Dunn's contract.

Harry was re-appointed as Manager of Whitby Town in May 2009.
