John Frederick Hollowbread (2 January 1934 – 7 December 2007) was a football goalkeeper who played for Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton.

He was born at Ponders End and represented Middlesex Schools and played for Enfield prior to signing amateur forms for Tottenham Hotspur in June 1950. He was upgraded to professional status on 21 January 1952, but spent most of his early career as understudy to Ted Ditchburn and Ron Reynolds. He eventually made his first team debut in a 5–0 defeat at Blackburn Rovers on 30 August 1958.

In 1958–59 he played 44 games before losing his place to Bill Brown. From then on, he only made occasional appearances, including one in the 1960–61 double season to be one of 17 players used in the Double winning squad . He spent most of his time in the reserves, keeping goal in over 350 competitive games for the second and third teams. He scored a penalty for the reserves in an 8–0 win over Mansfield Town on 17 March 1962. His final senior appearance for Spurs was against Ipswich Town on 4 April 1964.

At the end of the 1963–64 season, he was placed on the transfer list and was snapped up straight away by Southampton's manager Ted Bates for a £3,000 fee. He played 30 consecutive games at the start of the 1964–65 season before losing his place to Tony Godfrey. The following season, he started as first choice for the 'keeper's shirt until sustaining a serious knee injury versus Coventry City on 8 September 1965 which ended his career. He made a total of 40 senior appearances for "the Saints".
