Stanley Milburn (born 27 October 1926 in Ashingtonmarker) is an Englishmarker former football full back. Part of a famous footballing dynasty, he is brother of John Milburn b 1908 (Leeds United and Bradford City), George Milburn b 1910 (Leeds United and Chesterfieldmarker), James Milburn b 1919 (Leeds United and Bradford City), cousin of Jackie Milburn and uncle of Jack and Bobby Charlton.

Milburn began his career at local non-league club Ashington where he attracted the attentions of Chesterfield for whom he signed in January 1947. In March 1952 he moved to Leicester City where he won a second division medal in 1953-54. Despite being a good club servant Milburn's time at Filbert Streetmarker is remembered as much for a unique occurrence when he and defensive partner Jack Froggatt both mishit a clearance simultaneously, thus registering the Football League's only occurrence of an own goal credited to two different players. He moved to Rochdale in January 1959 and earned a testimonial at the club, creating another unique achievement by being awarded this honour at all three of his league clubs.

Following his retirement he settled in Rochdalemarker where he worked as a warehouseman.
