Howard Charles "Charlie" Slade (born 29 January 1891) was a professional footballer, who played for Aston Villa, Huddersfield Town, Middlesbrough and Darlington.

Slade was working as a scout for Crystal Palace when manager Ronnie Rooke resigned, in 1950.[1] Palace appointed Slade as joint-manager with long-serving player, and Rooke's assistant, Fred Dawes. However the club had a poor 1950–51 season and early into the next campaign Dawes and Slade were removed from their positions.[1]

Slade reverted to his position as a scout and remained with Palace until 1955.[1]
