Albert Victor Pearson (6 September 1892 – 24 January 1975) was an English footballer who played as a forward for Sheffield United, Port Vale, Liverpool, Llanelli, Rochdale, Stockport County and Ashton National Gas.
Pearson played for Hebburn Argyle and Sheffield United before joining Port Vale in the summer of 1914. He was a first team regular during the war years and was a member of the side that won the North Staffordshire Infirmary Cup in 1915. The club went into abeyance due to war concerns during the 1915–16 and 1916–17 seasons, but he continued his first team duties at The Old Recreation Ground upon the club's re-forming. He was sold to First Division side Liverpool in January 1919, however Sheffield received some of the fee as they claimed he was still on their books, despite him leaving them five years previous. He missed only nine games in his second season for the "Reds", but fell out of favour at Anfield the next season. He went back to Port Vale in May 1921 and regained his first team place, and played 19 Second Division games before he picked up an injury in February 1922 and was released at the end of the season. He moved on to Llanelli, Rochdale, Stockport County and Ashton National Gas.
