Frank Broome (11 June 1915 10 September 1994) was an English professional footballer and manager.

He played for Aston Villa during his professional career and won seven caps as an England striker, scoring three times, including once against Germany on his debut in 1938. He guested for Nottingham Forest during WW2, making 3 appearances (1 goal) in 1939-40, 1 appearance (4 goals) in 1940-41 and 10 appearances (4 goals) in 1941-42. He also guested for Wolves during wartime, playing and scoring in the 1942 War Cup Final.

In 1955 Broome signed for Shelbourne. Approaching 40 years of age and coupled with the expense of weekly flights to Dublin he ended up only playing 6 games for Shels.

After retiring from playing, he went on to manage both Exeter City and Southend United.
