William "Billy" Agnew (born 9 January 1898; date of death unknown) was a Scottish footballer who played as a forward for Pollok, Ayr United, Falkirk, Port Vale, Arthurlie, and Luton Town.

Playing career[edit]

Agnew played for Pollok, Ayr United and Falkirk, before moving down to England to sign with Port Vale in September 1921.[1] He hit a total of five goals in 31 appearances in the 1921–22 season, and scored his first goal in the Second Division on 29 October, in a 1–0 win at South Shields.[1] However he was used more sparingly the next season, and scored just one goal in 11 games.[1] After undergoing cartilage operations in the spring of 1923 he was released from his contract at The Old Recreation Ground.[1] He moved on to Arthurlie of the Scottish Third Division, and then returned to the Football League to play for Luton Town.[1]
