William "Billy" Townley, (14 February 1866 30 May 1950 in Blackpool, England), was an English football (soccer) player and coach.

He scored the first hat-trick in the history of the FA Cup final, but his lasting legacy is defined as an important pioneer of the game in Germany and as a journeyman coach on the continent.
