William Young (8 March 1861 – 6 October 1933) was an English cricketer. White's batting style is unknown, though it is known he played as a wicket-keeper. He was born at Staveley, Derbyshire.

Young made a single first-class appearance for Liverpool and District against Yorkshire in 1891 at Aigburth Cricket Ground, Liverpool.[1] In a match which Liverpool and District won by 54 runs, Young batted twice, ending Liverpool and District's first-innings not out on 21, while in their second-innings he was dismissed for a duck by Bobby Peel.[2]

He died at the town of his birth on 6 October 1933.
