Frederick George Avey (31 August 1909 17 September 1999) was an English professional footballer, playing as a forward in the late 1920s and early 1930s. He was born in Poplar, London and died in Hornchurch, Essex.

Fred Avey joined Fulham from Leyton in April 1928, making his league debut in a 1 0 win away to Reading on 28 April 1928. He soon became a regular goalscorer for Fulham, hitting 15 league goals in his first full season. After this promising start, he was not a first-team regular during the following seasons, though was still a regular scorer in the games he played. His last game for Fulham was on 31 March 1931, a 4 2 win away to Southend United, but he then stayed at Fulham for a further season without appearing in the first team.

In June 1932 he moved to Torquay United, starting the season as a first choice and made his debut on 27 August 1932 in a 3 3 draw at home to Coventry City. He kept his place for the next game, away to Bristol City, but then lost his place to Albert Hutchinson and made just two further first appearances that season, in the FA Cup at home to Queens Park Rangers on 10 December and finally on 22 April away to Bristol Rovers before moving to non-league Tunbridge Wells Rangers.
