George Wall (20 February 1885 1962) was an English football player.

Born in Boldon Colliery, County Durham, Wall started his career with Boldon Royal Rovers, and played for Whitburn and Jarrow before joining Barnsley in 1903. In almost three years with Barnsley, Wall scored 24 league goals at a rate of almost one goal in every three games. In 1906, he transferred to Manchester United, who helped win the 1908 and 1911 league titles, as well as the 1909 FA Cup. He left the club in 1915 because of World War I, and joined Oldham Athletic after the war in 1919. He scored 98 goals for United in his career. He then played for two seasons with Oldham, before travelling north of the border to Hamilton Academical. He returned to England to play for Rochdale a year later, but dropped out of league football in 1923, playing for Ashton National and Manchester Ship Canal. He retired in 1927.

Wall also won seven caps for England, scoring two goals.

He died, aged 77, in 1962.
