Edward Goodier (15 October 1902 – 4 November 1967) was an English professional footballer and football manager. Born in Farnworth, Lancashire, he played as a wing half for Huddersfield Town, Lancaster Town, Oldham Athletic, QPR, Watford, Crewe Alexandra and Rochdale. He was appointed player-manager at Rochdale in 1938, and continued in that capacity during the Second World War until taking over as caretaker manager of Birmingham City, a post which he held for six months before returning to Rochdale. He went on to manage Wigan Athletic and Oldham Athletic. He died in his native Farnworth at the age of 65.
