Alan Thomas Burgess (born 1 May 1920, Christchurch, New Zealand) is a former New Zealand cricketer who played first-class cricket for Canterbury from 1940 to 1952.

In his first first-class match in December 1940 he played as a bowler, taking 6 for 52 and 3 for 51 with his left-arm spin against Otago. Later that season he batted as high as number seven, scoring 61 not out against Wellington.

After the war ended in Europe he played as a batsman. He toured England with the New Zealand Services team from July to September 1945, making another score of 61 not out in the only first-class match. In nine matches for Canterbury between 1945-46 and 1951-52 his top score was 42 against Auckland in 1950-51, when he put on 105 for the first wicket with Ray Emery.
