Alfred George 'Alfie' Biggs (8 February 1936 – 20 April 2012) was an English professional footballer, who spent the vast majority of his career at Bristol Rovers.

Biggs grew up as one of 8 children in the Knowle West area of Bristol where he attended Ilminster Avenue and Connaught Road schools.[1]

Nicknamed "The Baron"[2] Biggs played as a forward who scored a total of 211 goals in The Football League. He began his career at Bristol Rovers, starting out as a junior at the club before progressing to the first team in 1953 at the age of seventeen. He played for the club for eight years before heading north to play for Preston North End for a single season. He returned to his home city of Bristol in 1962 for a further six years. His final season as a professional footballer was 1968–69, during which he spent time with Bristol Rovers, Walsall and Swansea Town. After this he dropped out of the league to play for Taunton Town.
