Frank Charles Hayes (born 6 December 1946, Preston, Lancashire)[1] is a former English cricketer, who played in nine Tests and six ODIs from 1973 to 1976. He made an unbeaten 106 in his first Test appearance, becoming the thirteenth man to score a century on debut for England,[2] but in eight further Tests (all against the West Indies) his highest score was a mere 29.

For Lancashire he had more success. He made 94 on his first-class debut in the 1970 season, seven years later hit Malcolm Nash for 34 runs in an over (6-4-6-6-6-6) and captained the Lancashire side from 1978 to 1980. He retired in 1984.

Hayes is director of cricket at Oakham School.
