Frederick Ernest "Fred" Froude (3 July 1910 - 16 June 1978)[2] was an Australian rules footballer who played with Collingwood and coached St Kilda in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Although Froude played most of his career as a half back flanker, he started as a forward and kicked 30 goals in the 1931 VFL season.[3][4] He played in five grand finals for three premierships; 1930, 1935 and 1936.[3] In 1948, nine years after retiring, Froude returned to the VFL as coach of St Kilda.[5] Before the war he had been coach of Brighton.[6]
