Walter Cox (1849 – 1925) was an English footballer and manager for Stoke.[1]


Cox was another ex-Stoke player who stepped into the manager's seat vacated by Thomas Slaney in 1883.[1] Cox's reign however was a comparatively short one, and he was replaced by Harry Lockett after less than a year in charge.[1] He played in and managed the club's first competitive match in the FA Cup which Stoke lost 2–1 against Manchester.[1]
