William Cook (20 January 1909 – 11 December 1992) was a Northern Irish professional football player and manager. He was capped 15 times for Ireland.[1]

During his career he played for Celtic in Scotland and Everton in England. Cook took up the position of player-manager at Rhyl F.C. in 1946 before moving on to SK Brann in Norway and the Peru national side amongst others.

He was a member of Everton's FA Cup winning side of 1933, and on his death in December 1992, almost 60 years later, he was the last surviving player from that team.
