Ken Newton (born 17 April 1924) was an Australian rules footballer who played for Essendon and Hawthorn in the Victorian Football League (VFL). Newton was recruited locally to Essendon and played as a reserve in their 1947 Grand Final loss to Carlton. He kicked five goals in a game at Princes Park against the same opponents the following season. Newton often struggled to make the seniors in what was a strong Essendon side so during the 1950 season crossed to Hawthorn.
