Iain George William Dunn (born 1 April 1970) is an English former professional footballer who played for, amongst other clubs, York City, Chesterfield, Peterborough United, Scarborough, Goole Town, Huddersfield Town and Scunthorpe United. He also represented England at youth level. Whilst in his second spell at Chesterfield he helped them reach the FA Cup semi final in 1997, playing as a substitute in the quarter final tie against Wrexham. However, he didn't play in the semi final itself, as Chesterfield ultimately lost to Middlesbrough after a replay.

Dunn was the first player in British football to score a golden goal. He achieved this feat in the Auto Windscreens Shield for Huddersfield Town versus Lincoln City on 30 November 1994. Huddersfield won 3-2 in extra time. Dunn was later presented with a commemorative trophy.

Always a cult figure, Dunn polarised fans' opinions; despite this he was voted Huddersfield Town's all-time cult hero by the club's fans in an August 2004 poll for the BBC's Football Focus programme, and he has recently been included in the fans' all-time 100 favourite players.

His cult status amongst Huddersfield fans was often aired with the popular terrace chant:

Iain Dunn,
Iain Dunn,
Iain, Iain Dunn
He's got no hair,
But we don't care.
Iain, Iain Dunn.

Dunn is currently a street environment officer for York City Council. In late 2006, Iain was involved in a national campaign to prevent the people of York putting their bins out too early, a job described as "not glamorous, but...very, very important" by Iain, on a Daily Mail press release. Iain is a Street Environment Officer and this new team, which was set up to fight environmental crime in 2003, has won national awards.
