Charlie Roberts (born April 6, 1883 in Darlington, died August 7, 1939 in Manchester) was an English football player.

Charlie started his career with Bishop Auckland, but soon moved to Grimsby Town. In 1904, he was transferred to Manchester United for £750. Playing as half-back or centre-half he helped the club win the 1908 and 1911 league titles as well as the 1909 FA Cup. He left the club in August 1913 for a then record fee of £1,500 to Oldham Athletic, who he also went on to manage, after appearing in 299 matches and scoring 23 goals for United.

Charlie was capped three times for England.

He died at Manchester Royal Infirmary following a cranial operation after suffering extended 'dizzy spells'.
