Jimmy Settle was an English professional footballer. A fast-paced inside or outside right, he could have chosen sprinting if he had not taken up football.

Settle played for Bolton and Bury before joining Everton in 1899, with whom he won the FA Cup in 1906. Settle was Football League Division One's leading goalscorer for the 1901-02 season with 18 goals, the lowest of the highest totals achieved in the English top-flight to date. In 1908 Settle was sold to Stockport County, his final club before retiring from football.

Settle represented England 6 times between 1899 and 1903, playing in the British Home Championship against the other Home Nations, scoring 6 times, including a hat-trick against Ireland in February 1899.
