Charles William Frederick Field (December 1879 1948), known as Oakey Field, was an English professional footballer who played as an inside left or outside left for Sheffield United and Small Heath (later Birmingham) in the Football League.

Born in Hanwell, now in the London Borough of Ealing, Field played for Royal Ordnance Factories in the Southern League and for Brentford in the London League, where he helped the club to promotion from Division Two in 1897 followed by runners-up spot in Division One the next season. He then signed for reigning Football League champions Sheffield United, for whom he played in the 1901 FA Cup Final, losing to Tottenham Hotspur, then of the Southern League, after a replay. In January 1902, together with teammate Billy Beer, Field joined Small Heath. Unable to prevent their relegation from the First Division that season, he contributed to their immediate promotion in 1902 03 as runners-up. He retired from football in 1906 following persistent injuries.
