Arthur Fraser Mann (23 January 1948 – 4 February 1999) was a Scottish professional footballer who played as a defender. He later moved into management and coaching.


Mann was born in Falkirk, Scotland and began his playing career at Heart of Midlothian. He played for Hearts in the final of the 1967-68 Scottish Cup, although he ended up on the losing side as Dunfermline won 3-1. He then moved to England, where he represented Manchester City. He was signed by Joe Mercer and Malcolm Allison for a then club record of £65,000. Unfortunately he in common with Dennis Bergkamp had a fear of flying and so was unable to take part in City's European escapades. He failed to break into the successful Cup winning side and moved on after a season to Blackpool. He then moved to Notts County, Shrewsbury Town, Mansfield Town, Boston United (whom he also managed), Kettering Town and Telford United. He was Alan Buckley's assistant manager at Grimsby Town and West Bromwich Albion, and had a spell as caretaker-manager at Albion early in 1997 following Buckley's dismissal. He is the father of former Hull City stalwart Neil Mann. Mann died on 4 February 1999 in an industrial accident at a Birmingham factory.
