George Ernest Petherbridge (born 19 May 1927) was a professional footballer, who played for Bristol Rovers for seventeen years, between 1945 and 1962. He played as a winger for the club and made 457 appearances in the Football League, and 496 in all competitions, scoring 85 league and seven cup goals. After ending his professional career with Rovers, he dropped out of the Football League to join Salisbury in 1962 and in 1963 had a short spell with Falmouth Town in the South Western League (19 apps and 8 goals).

Petherbridge has the unusual distinction of having a road named after him, Petherbridge Way in Bristol. The road lies midway between Bristol Rovers' former home at Eastville Stadium and their current ground, the Memorial Stadium.
