Frederick Windsor 'Freddie' Warren (23 December 1907 – 1986) was a Welsh professional footballer and Wales international.

Club career[edit]

Warren began his career at his home town club Cardiff City, spending time as understudy to George McLachlan before becoming a more regular first team player. In January 1930, he was sold to Division One side Middlesbrough for a fee of £8,000, in a transfer that also involved Joe Hillier and Jack Jennings. After six years with Middlesbrough, Warren joined Heart of Midlothian, where he later became the clubs first Welsh international.[2] He remained at Tynecastle until the outbreak of World War II, returning to South Wales to work for Barry Town.

International career[edit]

Warren made his debut for Wales on 2 February 1929, scoring in a 2–1 win over Ireland in the 1929 British Home Championship.[3] Four months later, during the summer of 1929 Warren was selected for the Football Association of Wales tour of Canada but these matches were not classed as international cap matches.[4] His Cardiff City teammates Len Davies, Fred Keenor and Walter Robbins were also selected for the tour. During his career, he earned 6 caps for Wales over a period of nine years, scoring three times with all three being scored in matches against Ireland at the Racecourse Ground.
