Tommy Harmer (2 February 1928 – 25 December 2007) was an English footballer who played at inside-forward.

Nicknamed "Harmer the Charmer", he signed as an amateur in August 1948 and made his debut against Bolton in September, 1951. He made 222 appearances for Tottenham Hotspur scoring 51 goals before moving to Watford in October 1960.

Harmer signed for Chelsea in 1962 at the age of 34 and made his debut at home to Middlesbrough in October of that year. In total, he played nine games for Chelsea helping to win promotion to the top flight under manager Tommy Docherty. He scored just one goal, in a vital 1-0 away win against Sunderland in the penultimate game of the 1962-63 promotion season.

Harmer also played an important role in developing young players during the Docherty era, remaining as youth team coach until June 1967.

After his death, a minute's applause was held in his memory before Tottenham Hotspur's Boxing Day win over Fulham at White Hart Lane.[1]
