Frederick Hall (24 November 1924 – April 2006) was an English professional footballer who played in the Football League for Birmingham City.[1] In later life he was President of the Huntingdonshire Football Association.

Hall was born in Worksop, Nottinghamshire. He was working as a coal miner when he signed for Birmingham City in March 1947.[2] A centre forward, Hall scored on his debut in the Second Division on 5 April 1947 in a 2–1 home win against Fulham, and kept his place for the next two games.[3] Not selected again until November 1949, when he also scored, he went on to play for Southern League club Bedford Town and Eynesbury Rovers of the Eastern Counties League.[4]

Hall later managed Eynesbury as well as Huntingdonshire County representative sides. He became a member of the Huntingdonshire Football Association, and was appointed its President in 1991. He died in 2006 after a long illness at the age of 81.[4][5]
