W. H. Patterson (date of birth unknown) was a Scottish footballer who played in The Football League for Sheffield United between 1891 and 1892.[1] Primarily a defender he also filled in on various positions during his time at Bramall Lane.[1]

Patterson (or Pattison as he was referred to on occasions)[1] was simply described as being "from Edinburgh" by the local press on his signing by United in December 1891.[1] He featured only irregularly in the first team and played just a handful of competitive games.[1] By 1892 and with United now in The Football League more first team chances looked beyond him and it was announced he had left the club by December of that year.[1]
