George Edward Shaw (born 13 October 1899) was an English professional footballer who played for Doncaster Rovers, Gillingham, Huddersfield Town, West Bromwich Albion, Stalybridge Celtic, Worcester City and Floriana.
In a season which saw Doncaster become runners up in the Midland League and win the Wharncliffe Charity Cup, Shaw scored 6 league goals, 5 of them penalties, plus one penalty in the cup rounds. The following season, 1923–24, Rovers were selected for promotion back to the Football League for the first time since 1905. In their first match of the season Shaw managed to send his penalty kick into the stand, thus missing out on scoring their first return goal and failing to win the match. His last match for Doncaster was at Walsall on 26 January 1924, after which he transferred to Huddersfield Town to play in their first of three successive First Division Championship seasons.
runners up: 1926–27
