William Hugh "Billy" Shaw (3 November 1872 – 2 February 1938) was an Australian rules footballer who played with St Kilda and Melbourne in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Shaw was already a 100-game veteran for St Kilda when he made his VFL debut, having played for the club in the Victorian Football Association.[1] He was St Kilda's inaugural VFL captain, leading the club in 1897 and 1898. A wingman, he experienced losses in each of his 29 league games for St Kilda and even lost the only fixture he played with Melbourne,[2] which he joined in 1901.[3]
