Edward "Eddie" Sholl (15 April 1872 – 29 June 1952[1]), also known as Ted Sholl, was an Australian rules footballer who played for the Melbourne Football Club in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Sholl was a foundation player for Melbourne, playing six games in the 1897 inaugural VFL season, three of which were finals.[2]

He captained Melbourne in 1899 and in the same year represented Victoria in an interstate fixture against South Australia.[3][4]

A fullback, he kept Gerald Brosnan goal-less in the 1900 VFL Grand Final, which Melbourne won.[5]
