Walter "Watty" Samuel Corbett (26 November 1880 in Wellington, Shropshire – 1955 in Birmingham) was an English amateur football (soccer) player who competed in the 1908 Summer Olympics.

He was a member of the English team, which won the gold medal in the football tournament.

In 1908 he was a member of the full England squad who toured Europe for the first time, making three appearances in the space of seven days against Austria, Hungary and Bohemia; all three matches resulted in comfortable victories for England.
