Gareth Hopkins (born 14 June 1980, in Cheltenham, England) is an English football striker who currently plays for Bishops Cleeve.

Hopkins started his career at the age of 17 by signing with his hometown club Cheltenham Town. He turned down Cardiff City in the process. He stayed with the Robins for 4 years, during which Cheltenham Town rose from the Conference National to League Two. During his time at Cheltenham Town, he was sent on loan to Cinderford Town, Bath City, and Forest Green before being released in 2002.

Following his release from Cheltenham Town, he went on trial with Kettering Town before eventually being signed to Cirencester Town by then manager Bryan Hughes. He spent 4 years with them, finishing top goal scorer in each of his 4 years. He holds the Cirencester Town records for scoring in 10 consecutive games as well as scoring 5 goals in a league match.

In 2006, Hopkins was signed to Weston-super-Mare by former manager Frank Gregan. However when the new manager Tony Ricketts took over the club, Hopkins found his place on the squad minimized. He was eventually released following the conclusion of the 2007-2008 season and linked up with Bishops Cleeve.
