John Hodge (born 1 April 1969 in Ormskirk, England) is a right winger who earned cult status at Gillingham. He was regarded as a supersub, coming on late in games to create chances and take on tiring opposition left-backs.

He went on trial with Manchester United from November 1989 to December 1989. He joined Gillingham in July 1998. His only league goal was a second-half injury-time equaliser against Macclesfield on 3 October 1998.

He was the only Gillingham player to successfully convert a penalty in their 3-1 penalty shoot-out defeat to Manchester City in the 1998/99 Division Two Play-off final. Hodge was signed by Kidderminster Harriers in January 2003.
