W. Nesbitt (full name unknown, occasionally referred to as Nisbitt in some reports)[1] was a footballer who played for Sheffield United as a defender during the 1891–92 season.[1] Little else is known about him, with no surviving contemporary records or documents as to his full identity.[1] Nesbitt was registered by United in the summer of 1891 and played in 29 games during the course of the season, although the majority of them were friendly fixtures.[1] He did make five competitive starts in the Northern League and a further two in the FA Cup before being released the following summer.[1]
