Herbert John McFerran (1900 – after 1951) was an English footballer who played as a centre forward in the Football League for Darlington. He was also on Durham City's books but never played League football for them.

Life and career

McFerran was born in 1900 in Jarrow, County Durham, the second child of William McFerran, a dry dock clerk, and his wife Mary. By 1911, the family had moved to Hebburn.

He made his Football League debut for Darlington in the 1921–22 season, and remained with the club until 1923. He played four times in the Third Division North, and scored three goals, the first two in a 7–3 defeat at Crewe Alexandra in April 1922, and the third in a 3–2 win against Barrow in September. He went on to play for Durham City, but not in the League.

In 1928, McFerran married Mary Best. He became a marine engineer, and in 1952, he, his wife and their son emigrated to Canada.
