Narada Michael Bernard (born 30 November 1981 in Bristol) is an Jamaican-English football left-back, currently playing for Margate. He has played once for the Jamaica national side.

Narada Bernard began his career with Tottenham Hotspur before moving, as a trainee, to local rivals Arsenal, turning professional in August 1999. He played alongside Ashley Cole in the reserves for Arsenal, but failed to break into the first team.

He moved to Bournemouth on a free transfer in 2000, signing a two-year contract. His time at Bournemouth was disrupted by injuries and he was released at the end of the 2002-03 season having played 38 first team games. He had an unsuccessful trial with Kidderminster Harriers in July 2003.

Bernard signed for Woking in August 2003, joining Torquay United in November 2003. At Torquay he trained alongside former Arsenal youth team colleagues Lee Canoville and Jo Kuffour, but played only once for the first team (as a late substitute for Canoville in the 1-1 draw at home to York City on the 13th of December) before being released by Torquay manager Leroy Rosenior in January 2004.

On 2 June 2004 Bernard made his only appearance for Jamaica in a 1-0 defeat against the Republic of Ireland in the Unity Cup at the Valley when he came on as late substitute for Deon Burton.

Bernard joined Welling United in September 2004. He had a further unsuccessful trial with Kidderminster Harriers in December 2004. He moved to Barnet and then to Farnborough Town in January 2005, but played just 4 games before being released in March 2005 when he joined Dover Athletic. He spent August 2005 with Yeading and in December 2005 was playing for Hemel Hempstead Town. In 2006 Bernard was playing for Fisher Athletic, and moved to Rushden & Diamonds in January 2007, before leaving only a few weeks later to join up with ex-Bournemouth colleague Jason Tindall at Weymouth. He signed a new one year deal at Weymouth at the start of July 2007.

In February 2008 Bernard joined Maidenhead United.

In January 2009 Bernard joined Hertfordshire outfit Bishop's Stortford on a one month loan deal. The move was made permanent later that month.

In August 2009 he signed for Isthmian League Premier Division Margate, making his debut at home to Dartford on 18th of that month.
