Frankie Lane (20 July 1948 19 May 2011) was an English former footballer who played as a goalkeeper. He began his Football League career with Tranmere Rovers, before joining Liverpool, where he spent four years as reserve goalkeeper. He made only two appearances for the club the first of which, against Derby County, was notable for an incident where he safely caught a cross, only to step back over his goal line but did make it onto the bench for the 1973 UEFA Cup Final, before leaving to join Notts County in 1975. He was also second choice at Meadow Lane, understudying Eric McManus, before dropping into non-league football with Kettering Town in March 1978.

Lane died in May 2011.
