Edwin John Alley (30 July 1881 – 18 July 1949) was an Australian rules footballer who played with South Melbourne in the Victorian Football League (VFL). Some AFL sources list his name as Ned Alley.
In 1907, with regular captain Paddy Noonan unavailable, Alley captained Williamstown to an 18-point grand final victory over West Melbourne, in the Victorian Football Association. This gave him the distinction of being Williamstown's first ever premiership captain.
Alley, who made his living as an engineer, served overseas with the 3rd Pioneer Battalion during World War I. He took part in London's "Pioneer Exhibition Game", which was played in 1916.
