Ted Cordner (31 January 1919 – 4 March 1996)[1][2] was an Australian rules footballer who played with Melbourne in the Victorian Football League (VFL) during the 1940s. The older brother of Melbourne Team of the Century members Denis and Don Cordner, Ted would have played more than 52 games had he not pursued a medical career. His youngest brother was John.

Cordner joined the club in 1941 and was a member of their premiership winning side. He missed the entire 1944 and 1945 seasons due to him being busy serving as a naval doctor but managed to play 19 games in 1946 as well as representing Victoria in an interstate match.
