Greg Pearson (born 3 April 1985) is an English footballer currently playing for Burton Albion in League Two.

His previous clubs include West Ham United, Rushden & Diamonds, and more recently Bishop's Stortford.

After beginning his career in the youth squad at West Ham United, he had short loan spells at Lincoln City and non-League Canvey Island. After four and a half years at West Ham, he joined League Two side Rushden & Diamonds on a free transfer. His time at Rushden was an unsuccessful one as he went on to score only one goal in 29 league games. After leaving Rushden, he joined Bishop's Stortford where he went on to score 42 goals in 64 games in two seasons. While at Bishop's Stortford Pearson won the Conference South player of the year and golden boot.

In the summer of 2008, Burton Albion paid reportedly over £10,000 for the services of Pearson on a two-year contract and he helped them into the Football League that season scoring 18 league goals and 20 in all competitions.

On 8 August 2009 Pearson scored Burton's first ever Football League goal in their 3-1 away defeat to Shrewsbury Town. On 12 December 2009 he scored Burton's first ever Football League hat-trick during a 6-1 victory over Aldershot Town.

He is currently studying for a degree in Physiotherapy at the University of Birmingham
