Noel Sherwin Harford, born 30 August, 1930 in Wintonmarker and died at Aucklandmarker on 30 March, 1981, was a cricketer who played for Central Districts, Auckland and New Zealand.

A neat right-handed batsman strong at driving and pulling but weak in defence and against spin, Harford came to prominence on the New Zealand tour to Pakistan and India in 1955-56, and made his Test debut against Pakistan at Lahoremarker, scoring 93 and 64. That debut, though, proved by some distance Harford's most successful Test appearance.

In England in the wet summer of 1958, Harford made his maiden century against Oxford University and shared a partnership of 204 with his captain, John Reid in two hours and 10 minutes. But in eight innings in four Test matches, he scored just 41 runs and reached double figures only once, a gritty innings of 23 at Edgbastonmarker in which he had to retire for a period after being hit in the face by a bouncer from Fred Trueman.

In all, Harford played eight Test matches and scored 229 runs at an average of just over 15 runs per innings.

After his cricket career, he moved onto the basketball court and played basketball for New Zealand for a period of time
