Edward "Wingy" Stevenson (11 April 1901 – 19 July 1977) was an Australian rules footballer who played with Geelong in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

The pint-sized Stevenson was a wingman, who Geelong recruited locally from Chilwell.[1] He could also play as a forward but was on the wing when he played in the 1925 VFL Grand Final, which Geelong won to claim their first VFL premiership.[2][3]
