Ernest "Ernie" Stevenson (born 28 December 1923 in Rotherham, died 1970) was a former English professional footballer.
After playing for one of the clubs nursery sides, Stevenson began his career at Wolverhampton Wanderers but did not play league football for them for several years due to World War II . When league football resumed, Stevenson struggled to make an impact on the first team playing just 8 times before being allowed to join Cardiff City in October 1948.
Put straight into the starting line-up, he finished his first season as the clubs top scorer with 14 goals in all competitions and continued his scoring during the early stages of the following season but as the year progressed his goals dried up and he moved to Southampton in exchange for Wilf Grant moving the other way. He never managed to fully regain his form and after one year at Southampton he joined Leeds United before dropping out of league football.
