Stanley Milburn (born 27 October 1926 in Ashington) is an English former football full back. Part of a famous footballing dynasty, he is brother of John ('Jack') Milburn b 1908 (Leeds United and Bradford City), George Milburn b 1910 (Leeds United and Chesterfield), James ('Jimmy') Milburn b 1919 (Leeds United and Bradford City), cousin of Jackie Milburn and uncle of Jack and Bobby Charlton.

Milburn began his career at local non-league club Ashington where he attracted the attentions of Chesterfield for whom he signed in January 1947. In March 1952 he moved to Leicester City where he won a second division medal in 1953-54. Despite being a good club servant Milburn's time at Filbert Street is remembered as much for a unique occurrence when he and defensive partner Jack Froggatt both mishit a clearance simultaneously, thus registering the Football League's only occurrence of an own goal credited to two different players.[2] He moved to Rochdale in January 1959 and earned a testimonial at the club, creating another unique achievement by being awarded this honour at all three of his league clubs.[3]

Following his retirement he settled in Rochdale where he worked as a warehouseman.[4]
