John "Jack" Powell (25 March 1860 – 16 March 1947) was a Welsh association footballer who played as a full-back for Newton Heath in the late 1880s.

Born in Ffrwd, near Wrexham, Powell began his football career with Druids in 1879 before transferring to Bolton Wanderers in October 1883. He was forced to leave Bolton in 1885 due to a transgression of FA Cup rules regarding professionals, but not before turning out six times in the competition for the club.[1] He then signed for Newton Heath (now Manchester United) in 1886, eventually becoming club captain. By the time he left the club in 1890, he had made four FA Cup appearances.[2]

Over the span of his career, Powell made 15 appearances for Wales, five of them while with Newton Heath.[3]
