Herbert Leonard Rosier (21 March 1893 – 1 March 1939) was an English professional footballer who played as a left back. He played in the Football League for Brentford, Clapton Orient, Southend United and Fulham.
Rosier began his career at non-league clubs Hanwell North End, Uxbridge and Southall , before moving to Southern League Second Division club Brentford with his brother in 1913. A left back, Rosier's progress was halted by the outbreak of the First World War in 1914 and he enlisted to fight. After the armistice, Rosier returned to Brentford and played in the 1918–19 London Combination title-winning team. After Brentford's election to the Third Division in 1920, Rosier made his Football League debut for the club in a 3–0 defeat to Exeter City on 28 August 1920. By the time of his departure from Griffin Park in February 1923, Rosier had made 127 appearances. He later played for Clapton Orient, Southend United, Fulham and Folkestone .
During the First World War, Rosier and his brother, Alfred, served with the Royal Sussex Regiment and both were captured by the Germans in July 1917 near Monchy-le-Preux. Both brothers were interred in prisoner of war camps in Douai, Dülmen and Münster before being repatriated in November 1918. Rosier held the rank of private.
