George Walter Anderson (born January 1893 in Cheetham, Manchester; date of death unknown) was an English football player. Anderson was a forward with Manchester United whose career started in 1911. Anderson went on to score 39 goals for United, and scored another 39 unofficial goals during the First World War.

Anderson was involved in a match fixing scandal that ended his career. In a game at Old Trafford on 29 December 1917 against Burnley, he was accused of fixing the match after three United players complained to the team president. He was then banned from Old Trafford on 8 January 1918. On 12 January, he was again accused of fixing a match between Everton and Blackpool, and on 20 February, the Football League gave him an indefinite ban from the sport.
