Laurence "Laurie" Sivell (born 6 February 1951 in Lowestoft) is an English former footballer who played in the Football League as a goalkeeper for Ipswich Town and Lincoln City.

Sivell spent 15 years with Ipswich Town, between 1969 and 1984. He made 141 league appearances for the East Anglian club during that time, despite primarily being the understudy to goalkeepers including David Best and Paul Cooper. He also played two games on loan to Lincoln City in the 1978–79 season. Sivell was noted for his bravery, typically diving at the feet of oncoming strikers to snatch the ball, and had considerable athletic ability to offset his diminutive size (for a goalkeeper).

Together with several Ipswich teammates, Sivell took part in the 1981 film Escape to Victory, known as just Victory in North America. He played the German goalkeeper.
