Frederick David "Freddie" Sears (born 27 November 1989) is an English professional footballer who plays as a forward for Ipswich Town. He started his career with his local club West Ham United at the age of eleven, progressing through the West Ham United Academy. He made a scoring first-team debut in March 2008 when he netted the winner against Blackburn Rovers after coming on as a second-half substitute. Sears made over 50 first-team appearances for West Ham, but never held down a regular starting position.

Sears had fruitless loan spells with Crystal Palace, Coventry City and Scunthorpe United, before joining Colchester United for the latter half of the 2011–12 season. He scored two goals in 11 appearances for the U's, prompting the club to sign him on a permanent basis from the Hammers in July 2012. After joining the Essex club, Sears rediscovered his scoring form, grabbing 34 goals in 99 games in his two-and-a-half year stay before departing for Ipswich. Sears has also represented England at under-19, under-20 and under-21 levels.
