John "Jocky" Petrie (born 1867/1868 – died ?) was a Scottish football player who played for Arbroath F.C. He holds the record for the most goals ever scored in a senior British football game with 13 goals. This occurred during Arbroath's famous 36–0 victory over Bon Accord F.C. in 1885.

At an international level, his record was not equaled until 2001 by Archie Thompson who scored 13 goals for Australia in a 31–0 win over American Samoa.
