Brian Grundy (born 9 May 1945 in Atherton, Lancashire) is a former professional football winger. He played in the Football League for Bury.

Grundy qualified as a schoolteacher and played part-time for Wigan Athletic in the Cheshire League, scoring eight goals in 71 appearances for the club between 1963 and 1967.[2] In November 1967 he played for Wigan against Bury in a Lancashire Cup game, scoring and impressing Bury manager Les Shannon to the extent that he was signed by Bury the following week.[1] He went full-time in January 1968 and was part of the Bury side that won promotion from Division Four that season. Released by Bury at the end of the 1970-71 season, Grundy joined Great Harwood Town in July 1971. He went on to play for Bangor City, Morecambe and Winsford United before being transferred to Mossley for a fee of £100 in March 1979.[1] He was released by Mossley in November 1979[1] and later had three years as manager of Glossop North End before taking over as manager of Mossley in December 1983.[1] He was sacked in October 1984 after a poor start to the 1984–1985 season.[1]

While managing Glossop and Mossley, Grundy was the landlord of a pub in Glossop.[1] He later emigrated to Spain.[1]
