Ernie Walley (born 7 April 1933 in Caernarfon) is a retired association football player, manager and coach.

Walley joined Tottenham Hotspur as a junior in May 1951, making five league appearances as a wing half before moving to Middlesbrough in 1958.[1] After eight appearances for Middlesbrough he moved into coaching. He was caretaker manager of Crystal Palace for six matches following the departure of Terry Venables in 1980.[2] He was later assistant manager to John Hollins at Chelsea during the mid-1980s, and reserve manager under Steve Harrison at Watford. His brother Tom played for Watford and Wales, and was a coach at Watford at the same time as Ernie.[3]
