Neil Young (born 31 August 1973 in Harlow) is a former professional footballer who currently plays for Cumberland United in the South Australian Premier League. He is an older brother of QPR defender, Luke Young.

He played over 400 league games for Bournemouth, some as captain, after joining in 1994 from Tottenham Hotspur. He played primarily at right back although played at centre back in the latter part of his Bournemouth career. Young was considered an attacking full back who would often support the right winger. He enjoyed a well-deserved testimonial in 2005 against his brother's Charlton Athletic side.

On 2 November 2007 he signed a one-month loan deal at Weymouth, linking up with former Bournemouth teammate Jason Tindall. He had his loan extended to a second month, although he was recalled by Bournemouth soon after.

At the end of the 2007/08 season he left England and moved to Australia after over 14 years service for the club. In 2009 he signed with South Australian Premier League club Cumberland United.
