Harold Phipps (15 January 1916 – 2000) was an English professional footballer who played as a centre half.


Born in Dartford, Phipps started his professional career during the Second World War, with Charlton Athletic. During the war he also made guest appearances for Chelsea and Fulham.[1] Following the resumption of the Football League in 1946, Phipps made 185 league appearances for Charlton, scoring twice.[2] He is perhaps better known for his appearances in the FA Cup; he was a losing finalist with Charlton in 1946, and was part of their cup-winning team in the following year's final. Phipps joined Watford in 1952, and went on to make 47 appearances in the Third Division South, scoring twice. He later player-managed non-league side Bexleyheath & Welling.[1][2]
