Christopher Kelan "Chris" Beardsley (born 28 February 1984) is an English footballer who plays for League One side Stevenage as a striker.

Beardsley started his career with Mansfield Town, spending two years at the club, during which he spent a brief period on loan at Worksop Town in 2004. He left Mansfield at the end of the 2003 04 season, and joined Doncaster Rovers after a successful trial in the summer of 2004. He failed to make an impact at the club, and subsequently signed for Kidderminster Harriers four months later. At the end of the season, he rejoined Mansfield Town, but only managed a total of 20 appearances during his one and a half year tenure at the club, and was loaned out to Conference National side Rushden & Diamonds in January 2007. He signed for the club on a permanent basis a month later, but struggled for first team appearances after Graham Westley was sacked as manager.

Beardsley then joined York City in June 2007, but suffered a broken jaw in two places in a match against Grays Athletic and, as a result, struggled to regain his place in the first team, and was loaned out to Kettering Town in December 2007. His loan spell at Kettering was hugely successful, and he joined the club on a permanent basis a month later, helping the side win promotion to the Conference National. The following season, he rejoined Kidderminster Harriers on loan in November 2008, but only managed a handful of appearances. He was later released by Kettering, and signed for Stevenage in May 2009 — helping the side secure promotion to the Football League for the first time in the club's history in his first season with the Hertfordshire outfit. The following season, Beardsley was part of the Stevenage squad that earned promotion to League One as a result of winning the 2010 11 League Two play-offs in May 2011.
