Alan Poore (born 7 July 1942) is a former Australian rules footballer who played for Collingwood in the Victorian Football League (VFL) and Waverley in the Victorian Football Association (VFA).

Poore had a brief career with Collingwood, remaining with the club for four years from 1961 until 1964 but never managing to cement a regular place the side, in part due to injuries suffered in a car accident in 1962. In 1965 he joined Waverley and was a member of their premiership side that season as well as winning a J. J. Liston Trophy. He won the award again in 1966 to become the first ever player in the history of the VFA to win it twice. A centreman, he was also a dual best and fairest winner at Waverley and in 1966 represented the VFA at the Hobart Carnival. He left the club after 1971, but made a brief comeback in 1978 at the age of 35. He finished with a total of 124 games for Waverley.
