Ernest W. Moore (1869 – after 1894) was an English professional footballer who played in the Football League for Small Heath.[1] He played as a left back.

Moore was born in Birmingham. He played for Sparkhill Alliance before joining Birmingham of the Second Division in 1893.[2] He made a promising start in the United Counties League, a secondary competition, but when the club signed Sid Oliver, he slipped down the pecking order. The only game he played in the Football League, on 29 December 1894, a 3–0 home win against Liverpool,[3] was when Oliver was injured, and he returned to local football with Hockley Hill in 1895.[2]
