Charles Oliver Bell (born 18 May 1894 in Dumfries[1]-died 5 June 1939[2]) was an English footballer and football manager.

He played for Dumfries Wanderers, Douglas Wanderers, Carlisle City, Woolwich Arsenal, Chesterfield, Barrow and Queens Park Rangers.

After coaching jobs at Sporting Clube de Portugal[3], Reading and Notts County, he became a full-time manager at Wigan Borough[4]. He left England for Italy, where he coached Padova from 1927 to 1928[5]. He came back to Lisbon with Sporting Clube de Portugal in 1928. In 1932, he was the first Marseille manager in the newly founded French professional football championship. In France, he had also a stint at Nice.[6]
