Ernest W. Williams (1882 – 5 August 1943) was an English amateur international who played at outside-left for Chelsea during the 1909-10 season. He also played for Portsmouth and Southampton, and remained an amateur throughout his career.

Williams was born at Ryde on the Isle of Wight and played for his local team before crossing the Solent to join Portsmouth of the Southern League in December 1906. In December 1909, Williams moved to London to join First Division Chelsea where he made six league appearances in the 1909-10 season. He also played twice in the FA Cup, scoring in a 2-1 victory over Hull City on 15 January 1910. During his time at Stamford Bridge, Williams won two England amateur caps in 1910-11.

Williams returned to Portsmouth the following year, spending a further two seasons with the Fratton Park club. In all he spent five years with Portsmouth, making 32 league appearances, scoring five goals, before moving to Southampton in the summer of 1912. He made only one appearance for the Saints, and retired at the end of the season. After retiring from football, Williams took up a career in teaching.
