Harry Williams (1875 – after 1896) was an English professional footballer who played in the Football League for Small Heath.[1]

Williams was born in Aston, which is now part of Birmingham, and played local football before joining Small Heath in April 1896.[2] He made his debut in the Second Division on 13 March 1897, deputising for regular right back Frank Lester in a game at Lincoln City which Small Heath won 3–1.[3] This was the only competitive first-team game that Williams played for the club before he returned to local football with Nechells.[2]
