William "Bill" Barraclough (3 January 1909 – 1969) was an English footballer.


Barraclough joined Wolverhampton Wanderers from his hometown club Hull City in 1928. He made his Wolves debut on 15 December 1928 in a 3–2 win against Clapham Orient.

He made only three appearances in his first season with the club but played regularly over the following seasons. He was a virtual ever-present when they won the Second Division championship in the 1931/32 season, scoring seven times during the campaign.

The wide-man remained a first choice player as the club consolidated in the top flight over the next two seasons before leaving to join Chelsea in October 1934. He played for Chelsea for the next two-and-a-half seasons, making 81 appearances in total and scoring 11 times.

He died in 1969.
