Gary Alexander Neville (born 18 February 1975 in Bury, Greater Manchester) is an English football player. He is England's most capped right back and Manchester United's club captain. Neville started at and has played his entire career so far at Old Trafford, making him to date a rare one club man. He made his international debut in 1995 and was first choice right back for club and country for more than ten years.

He is the brother of fellow Premier League footballer and Everton captain Phil Neville, who was also a Manchester United player (from 1993 until 2005). His sister Tracey Neville plays netball for England, his mother Jill is a receptionist for Bury and his father Neville Neville was once a cricketer for Lancashire.

The older of the Neville brothers joined Manchester United as an apprentice on leaving school in 1991, and captained the youth side to FA Youth Cup glory in his first season. He made his senior debut for United in September 1992 against Torpedo Moscow in the UEFA Cup. Gary emerged as part of Alex Ferguson's phenomenal youth-oriented side of the 1990s (nicknamed Fergie's Fledglings, an updated take on the 1950s equivalent Busby Babes) that included his brother Phil, Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes. In 1994, he became first-choice right back at the expense of Paul Parker and has remained so ever since. In the summer of 2004 Neville signed a four-year contract extension with United.
