Charles R. Bennett (born 1882) was an English footballer. He played professionally for Blackpool and Bradford City in what was a short career.

After beginning his career with Fleetwood Amateurs in the early 20th century, he joined nearby Blackpool in 1903. He made thirty Football League appearances for the Seasiders during 1903–04, scoring nine goals. He made his debut in the opening game of the campaign, a 3–0 defeat at Woolwich Arsenal on 5 September. He scored his first goal on 19 December, in a single-goal victory at Glossop.

Bennett had a short spell at Accrington Stanley, before returning to Blackpool in 1905. He scored four goals in twelve League appearances in his second spell at the club.

He finished his career with Bradford City later in 1905, making fourteen League appearances and scoring once.
