Edward William Fuller (1900 – after 1934) was a professional footballer who scored 20 goals from 129 appearances in the Football League playing for Brighton & Hove Albion and Watford.[2]

Fuller was born in Staines, Middlesex. He joined Brighton & Hove Albion in 1921 as a wing half but was converted to play at centre forward,[1] and finished the 1922–23 season as the club's top scorer, with 13 goals.[3] After Tommy Cook's introduction to the first team, Fuller reverted to wing half, and in 1927 he joined Watford on a free transfer. He spent two years at Watford before returning to Brighton where he played mainly for the reserve team. After a year out of the game, he spent another season with Brighton's reserves, then dropped out of the Football League to join Worthing, with whom he won the Sussex County League and Sussex Senior Cup during the next two seasons.[1]
