Garry Nelson (born 16 January 1961) is an English former footballer, born in Braintree, Essex, who played in the Football League for Southend United, Swindon Town, Plymouth Argyle, Brighton & Hove Albion, Charlton Athletic and Torquay United (as player/assistant manager) between 1979 and 1997. He played as a striker or on the left wing. He was named in Plymouth Argyle's team of the century.

Despite playing more than 600 games in the Football League, Nelson is perhaps best known for writing the two books, Left Foot Forward and Left Foot in the Grave. The books are both written in diary form, chronicling a season with Charlton (1994–95) and Torquay (1996–97) respectively. The books have been acclaimed as showing the real life of "ordinary" professional footballers, became best-sellers, and each was shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year award. After retiring from the game in 1997, Nelson became commercial executive of the Professional Footballers Association. As of 2009, he was still playing football, regularly turning out for Old Southendians in the Southend Borough Combination Veterans League and Charlton Athletic veterans.
