Edmund "Eddie" Boot (13 October 1915 – 1999) was an English professional footballer who played in the Football League as a left half for Sheffield United and Huddersfield Town.[1][2] He went on to become manager of Huddersfield Town.[3]

Boot was born in Laughton Common, near Rotherham. He played non-league football for Aughton and Denaby United[1] before joining Sheffield United in 1934.[3] He played 41 matches for the club in the Second Division,[1] then in 1937 signed for First Division club Huddersfield Town. He appeared in the 1938 FA Cup Final,[3] captained the side in the post-war period, and played 305 games for Huddersfield, all in the First Division, before retiring as a player in 1952. He then joined the coaching staff at the club, and in 1960 was appointed manager, a post which he held for four years. Boot died in 1999.[2]
