Albert Edward Harrison Cox (June 24, 1917 in Treeton, Rotherham 2003) was a former footballer. He played as a left-back for Sheffield United.

Albert joined Sheffield United from amateur side Woodhouse Mills United F.C., and quickly settled into the first team at Bramall Lane. He made his league debut against Blackpool at Bramall Lane on 20 February 1936, in a 1-0 win. Cox was often described as a 'bungle of energy' on the field of play. His partner at full-back in the late 1930s was Harry Hooper.

Though World War II interrupted his career, he played on for several seasons after hostilities had ended, and became one of the most consistent left-backs in the Football League. In total he made 267 league appearances for the Blades with 5 goals.

He was transferred to Halifax Town during the 1952 close season.
