John William D'Arcy (born 23 April 1936 in Christchurch) played five Tests for New Zealand on their tour of England in 1958. An opening batsman, he played first-class cricket for Canterbury from 1955-56 to 1959-60, and for Otago from 1960-61 to 1961-62. His top score was 89, made in nearly five hours, against Glamorgan early in the 1958 tour. In his first three seasons before the 1958 tour he made 810 runs at 30.00 with five 50s. Although he scored only 136 runs in the five Tests in 1958, this tally still made him New Zealand's third-highest scorer. He top-scored twice in the first two Tests, and his 33 out of a team total of 74 all out in the Second Test, in just over two hours, was the team's highest individual score until Tony MacGibbon made 39 in the second innings of the Third Test.
