Phillip Pinnell (born 7 January 1951) is a former Australian rules footballer who played for Carlton and Melbourne in the VFL.

Pinnell was a defender but started off as a winger when he debuted for Carlton in 1969. He played in that season's losing grand final against Richmond but was a premiership player the following season.

He was traded to Melbourne in 1979 before playing his last game of League football in 1981.

In 1982, he served as the captain-coach of the Springvale Football Club in its inaugural season in the Victorian Football Association second division.
