Charles Boyd "Charlie" Hare (June 1871 February 1934) was an English professional footballer who played as an inside forward or centre forward.

Born in Yardley, Birmingham, Hare played in the Football League in the 1890s for Aston Villa, contributing to their first league title in the 1893 94 season. He was transferred to Woolwich Arsenal in February 1895 and made his debut for the Second Division side on March 9, 1895 against Leicester Fosse, which ended as a 3 3 draw. In one-and-a-half seasons at the club he was in and out of the side, mainly playing at inside forward, although he also deputised for Joe Powell at right back.

With 20 goals and seven appearances to his name at Woolwich Arsenal, in November 1896 he moved to Small Heath. He then played for Watford in the Southern League, and is joint holder of the club record for most FA Cup goals in a season, with seven in the 1899 1900 campaign. Hare served with the Warwickshire Yeomanry in South Africa during the Boer War. On his return he tried to revive his career with Plymouth Argyle in the Southern League, but with little success, and he retired from the game in 1904.
