Frederick Roy Goodall (born 31 December 1902 in Dronfield, Derbyshire - 19 January 1982) was a professional footballer, who played for Huddersfield Town for 16 years and played 25 games for England, 12 as captain.

Goodall would have captained England in the first ever World Cup if they had decided to take a team to the tournament. He was widely regarded as one of the best defenders in the world at that time.

He was captain of Huddersfield Town throughout their most successful period, when they became the first team to win the English top flight three times in a row and dominated English football through the twenties.

In 1945, he became manager of Mansfield Town.
