Edward Brueton (1871 – after 1893) was an English footballer born in Penn, Staffordshire, who played in the Football League as a goalkeeper for Small Heath.[1] He joined Small Heath from Stafford Rangers on trial in September 1894. Without even playing reserve team football,[2] he stood in for regular goalkeeper Charles Partridge in the home game against Preston North End on 29 September, conceded four goals – the game finished as a 4–4 draw[3] – and was back in non-league football with Willenhall Swifts by November.[2]
