George Stanley Stevenson (20 July 1876 — 25 July 1938) was an English cricketer who played first-class cricket for Derbyshire in 1904.

Stevenson was born in Derby, the son of James Henry Stevenson, an ironmonger, and his wife Elizabeth.[1] He made his debut for Derbyshire in the 1904 season in a first-class match in May against London County captained by WG Grace. In the match, he made his top score of 9 and took a wicket. Stevenson's only County Championship match came against Essex a month later, in which he bowled economically without taking a wicket and made zero and 1 from the tailend.

Stevenson was a left-handed batsman who played 4 innings in 2 first-class matches with an average of 2.50 and a top score of 9. He was a left-arm fast-medium bowler and took 1 first-class wicket at an average of 92.00.[2]

Stevenson died in Fritchley, Derbyshire at the age of 62.
