William Taylor (1869 – after 1891) was an English professional footballer who made six appearances in the Football Alliance for Small Heath.[1]

Taylor was born in Smethwick, which was then in Staffordshire. He played for Langley Green Victoria before joining Small Heath in 1891 on the recommendation of Fred Wheldon.[2] He played six games in the Football Alliance and four in the FA Cup, scoring one goal,[1] but the club were unable to find a playing position which suited both Taylor and the team, and he left for Quinton at the end of the 1891–92 season.[2]
