Frederick Beedall (15 August 1911 – 1976) was an English professional footballer. He was born in Chesterfield.

Beedall, an inside-forward, joined Chesterfield in 1932 from Ling's Row Primitives. He made seven league appearances for Chesterfield before moving to Torquay United in 1934. He quickly became a regular in the Torquay side, making his debut in the second game of the 1934-35 season, a 3-2 defeat away to eventual champions Charlton Athletic. He went on to play 37 times in his first season at Plainmoor and was a regular for the next two seasons.

Towards the end of his time at Torquay, his career was disrupted by injuries to both of his knees, which would end his career.

Beedall fathered seven children[citation needed] and died in 1976.
