William E. Kiernan (born 22 May 1925 in Croydon - died 3 April 2006 in Pembury) was an English football midfielder.

Kiernan began his career with Charlton Athletic when Jimmy Seed signed him as an amateur in 1943. However he made no impact at the club and following his release he joined the Royal Ulster Rifles. He served in India and Hong Kong and whilst stationed in the latter played for Hong Kong where his performances caught the eye of Charlton again. A versatile midfielder, Kiernan established himself as a Charlton regular for most of his career and became the club's sixth highest scorer of all time.[3] He also featured for the London XI that took part in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup.

He finally left Charlton in 1961 and continued in non-league football for another two years with Guildford City before retiring. Kiernan had worked as an accountant during his playing days and continued in this role after leaving football, as well as becoming an antiques dealer in Tunbridge Wells.[4] He died in April 2006.[5]
