Gerry Sharpe (born 17 March 1946) is an English former professional footballer who played as a winger.

Career

Born in Gloucester, Sharpe played for Bristol City, as a winger/inside-forward renowned for his skill and exceptional pace. A series of impressive performances for Bristol City attracted interest in Sharp from some of the leading clubs in England. With his potential seemingly about to be realised, it all came to an end on 16 January 1971 when he suffered a career-ending broken leg during a match with Middlesbrough at Ashton Gate.

With his playing career over, Sharp took on a role coaching Bristol City's youth team and in 1982 enjoyed a brief spell as the club's caretaker manager, taking over following the dismissal of future England manager Roy Hodgson. A move to the USA followed where he had coaching roles at teams including Jersey Shore Boca and Chesapeake United. In 2014, he was appointed Director of Recreation and Academy Programs for Norfolk United based in Norfolk, Virginia.
