James "Jimmy" Daws (27 May 1898 June 1985) was an English professional footballer who played as a right half. He played 75 games in the Football League for Birmingham and Bristol Rovers.

Born in Mansfield Woodhouse, Nottinghamshire, he began his football career with brief spells as an amateur with Notts County and Mansfield Town, before joining Birmingham in January 1920. In four years with the club he played nearly 50 games, but failed to establish himself as a first-team regular. He moved on to Bristol Rovers, initially as an amateur, then after a couple of months the club paid £250 for his services as a professional player. After one season in Bristol, he returned home for a year, playing for Mansfield Woodhouse F.C., before finishing his career with two seasons as player-trainer of Poole Town. He contributed to the club winning the Western League Division Two in the 1925 26 season, reaching the Third Round Proper of the 1927 FA Cup, losing 3 1 to First Division club Everton, and winning the Dorset Senior Cup in both seasons.

He died in Birmingham at the age of 87.
