Septimus Atterbury (18 October 1880 date of death unknown) was an English footballer who played as a full back.

A full back, Atterbury is best remembered for thirty years of service that he gave to Plymouth Argyle as a player and then a coach.

He began his football career with Kettering Town, before representing Loughborough, Barnsley, Wellingborough, and Leicester Fosse. He moved to Swindon Town in July 1903, where he made more than one hundred appearances for the club in the Southern League, before he was signed by Plymouth Argyle in July 1907. He would feature for the club as a player until 1921, having made 361 appearances in all competitions, scoring 6 goals. He played for Leicester Fosse during the First World War as a wartime guest.

Atterbury was selected for a Southern League representative side in 1912. He retired as a player in the summer of 1921 and was then appointed as a coach at Home Park. A role which he would carry out, with the same class that he did as a player, for a number of years. He gained a reputation for his unconventional approach at the time, which was focused on stamina-building.
