William Henry Loverseed (1876 – 1914) was an English footballer.

Playing career[edit]

Loverseed played for Newark before joining Burslem Port Vale in June 1902.[1] He was a regular during the 1902–03 season, scoring five goals in 30 games, but never had a particularly lengthy first team spell afterwards.[1] In a 5–0 defeat at Bolton Wanderers on 2 January 1904 he managed to injure himself rather badly in a fall after stepping on the ball.[1] He was released at the end of the 1904–05 season.[1]
