William Robert "Billy" Moon (7 June 1868 – 9 January 1943) was an English footballer who represented the England national football team. He also played first-class cricket with Middlesex and his brother Leonard Moon was a Test cricketer.
Moon was a goalkeeper and debuted for England in a win over Wales in 1888 and same year kept a clean sheet against Scotland. His record as being the youngest goalkeeper for England remained until August 2012 when this was taken by Jack Butland of Birmingham City who was 64 days his junior. Up until 1891 he appeared in three further internationals against Wales and was capped twice against Scotland. He captained his country for the last of his seven internationals, when England took on Scotland at Ewood Park. When not playing for England he occupied the goals for both Old Westminsters and the Corinthians.
A solicitor by profession, Moon was also a capable cricketer and played as a hard hitting wicket-keeper batsman. He kept wicket for Middlesex in two first-class cricket matches during the 1891 County Championship. He made 17 not out on debut against Surrey in what would be his only first-class innings as Moon's second match was washed out after a day.
