Neil Richard Gregory (born 7 October 1972 in Ndola, Zambia) is an English professional football striker, who, until recently, has been playing for Canvey Island.

Gregory began his career as an apprentice with Ipswich Town, turning professional in February 1992. He joined Chesterfield on loan in February 1994, making his league debut for the Spirerites, and joined Scunthorpe United on loan in March 1995, hitting 7 goals in 10 games.

After the success of his loan spell, he returned to Ipswich and began to feature in the first team, though mainly as a substitute (27 of his 45 league appearances for Ipswich Town came this way). In November 1996 he joined Torquay United on loan, but failed to score in 5 games, and in November 1997 moved to Peterborough United on loan.

He joined Colchester United on loan in January 1998, with the move being made permanent on the 26th of March, Colchester paying a club record fee of £50,000. He was a regular for Colchester during the rest of the season, but was allowed to join the Boston Bulldogs on loan for the summer of 1999.

He joined Canvey Island on loan in December 1999, signing for them on a free transfer on the 4th of February after scoring 11 times in 53 games for Colchester. In May 2001 he was a member of the Canvey Island side that won the FA Trophy, and was a regular member of the side that won promotion to the Conference. In 2001 he scored the winning goals in FA Cup ties against Wigan Athletic and Northampton Town. At the time of the cup run, Gregory was reported to be a full-time house husband. He signed a new twelve month contract with Canvey Island in June 2005.

His brother David was also a professional footballer.
