Frederick William Hargreaves (16 August 1858 - 5 April 1897) was an English footballer who represented the England national football team. He also played first-class cricket with Lancashire.

A member of the Malvern College 1st XI team, Hargreaves played his club football for the Blackburn Rovers and was a midfielder in their team which lost the 1882 FA Cup Final. His first international cap for England came in 1880 when he took the field against Wales, with England winning 3-2. The following year he made an appearance in another international against Wales but this time finished on the losing side. In 1882, he claimed his third and final cap in a convincing 13-0 victory over Ireland. As of July 2010, this remains England's highest ever winning margin.

His brother John also played at Blackburn and represented England.

An amateur cricketer who was previously a member of Malvern's First Eleven Cricket team, he appeared in his only first-class cricket match in 1881, against Derbyshire. Hargreaves was dismissed by George Osborne for a duck in his only innings and took a couple of catches. He played club cricket at Blackburn's East Lancashire Cricket Club.
