Dean Dwight Gordon (born 10 February 1973) is a former English professional footballer who played in the position of left back between 1991 and 2009 in his native England as well as Cyprus and New Zealand. He notably played Premier League football for Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough, having also had spells as a professional with Cardiff City, Coventry City, Reading, Grimsby Town, APOEL Nicosia, Blackpool, Albany United, New Zealand Knights, Auckland City and Torquay United. Gordon also spent time playing in the English Non-League system with Worksop Town, Crook Town, Lewes, Whitby Town, Ilkeston Town, Glapwell, Workington and Thornaby.

Gordon, who was born in Croydon, South London, is a classic example of a journeyman footballer having represented 20 different clubs during an 18 year career, but despite this he had only played for two clubs in his first ten years in the game but spent his latter years playing for numerous clubs in several countries, as well as turning out for a bunch of English Non-League sides.
