Albert Bourne (1862 – unknown) was an English footballer who played for Stoke.[1]


Bourne played in the local church league before joining Stoke in 1888.[1] He was a member of Stoke's reserve side the 'Swifts' and was overlooked by manager Harry Lockett for the first team.[1] His only senior appearance came in the FA Cup against Warwick County.[1] Stoke lost and most of the reserve players including Bourne were released. He later went on to play for Tunstall Rovers.[1]
