Robert Edmond "Bob" Gregg (4 February 1904 – 1991) was an English professional footballer born in Ferryhill, County Durham, who played as an inside forward. He played for Darlington, Sheffield Wednesday, Birmingham and Chelsea in the Football League, making nearly 200 appearances in total.cite book |author=Joyce, Michael |title=Football League Players' Records 1888 to 1939 |publisher=SoccerData (Tony Brown) |location=Nottingham |year=2004 |pages=p. 107 |isbn=978-1-899468-67-6]

Having scored at a goal every two games for Darlington, Gregg joined Sheffield Wednesday before the 1928–29 season, and contributed to them winning that year's First Division championship. The following season he lost his place to the high-scoring Harry Burgess, and in January 1931 he joined Birmingham for a fee of £2,200. He played his part in that season's FA Cup campaign, and "scored" a goal in the 1931 FA Cup Final which was disallowed for offside. He moved on to Chelsea in September 1933 for a fee of £1,500, finishing his career with Boston United in the Midland League and with Sligo Rovers in Ireland during the Second World War.
