William 'Billy' Horner (born 7 September 1942 in Cassop, England) is an English footballer and manager.

Horner played at Middlesbrough from 1960 to 1969, primarily as a defender. He moved on to Darlington where he played until 1975.

He was player-manager of Darlington during the 1974 75 season, in which the club had to apply for re-election. He left the club at the end of the season. In October 1976, he was named manager of Darlington's arch-rivals Hartlepool United and had two separate spells as manager: one from 1976 1983 and the other from 1984-1986. Although Hartlepool applied for re-election to the League on three occasions, Horner also guided the club to a respectable 9th place finish in 1980 81, during which the club had been promotion contenders. In his second spell at the club, Hartlepool finished 7th in 1985 86, in which they had also been a promotion contender for much of the season.
