Frank Lester (born 1870, deceased) is a former English professional footballer born in Wednesbury, Staffordshire, who played as a fullback. He made 68 appearances in the Football League for Small Heath.

Small Heath were relegated from the First Division in 1895 96, Lester's first season with the club, but the next season he formed a sound fullback partnership with Billy Pratt. However, the arrival of Arthur Archer as first-choice right back meant Lester was competing with Pratt for the left-back position, which restricted his appearances. He contributed to Small Heath's runners-up finish in the 1900 01 season, thereby winning promotion back to the top flight, but left the club for Walsall later the same year.
