Shane Gore (born 28 October 1981 in Ashford, Kent) is an English footballer who plays as a goalkeeper. He currently plays for Chesham United of the Southern Premier League.


Gore began his career at Wimbledon, making his only appearance for the club in the 2001–02 season as a substitute in a 6–2 defeat to Grimsby Town. In the 2003–04 season Gore was sent on a one-month loan to non-league St Albans City, playing once; a one-month loan to Peterborough United,[1] where he was an unused substitute; then finally to Conference National side Barnet on a season-long loan, where he made a more successful 19 league appearances.[2]

After being released from Wimbledon at the end of the season, Gore signed for Barnet permanently on a one-year contract,[3] and was a member of their Conference-winning side in the 2004–05 campaign. He was released at the end of the season, signing for Stevenage Borough,[4] but played just two games before being released yet again.

Gore then moved into relative footballing obscurity, playing for Conference South clubs Havant & Waterlooville and Maidenhead United, as well as Isthmian Premier side East Thurrock United.[5][6] Whilst at Maidenhead, BBC London's Non League Show nominated Gore as one of the four best goalkeepers playing in non-league football.[7]

After being released by Maidenhead in the summer of 2009, Gore was offered a trial with Conference side Luton Town by manager Mick Harford, who was a coach at Wimbledon at the time Gore was on the fringes of the first-team. He signed an initial one-month contract with Luton on 7 August, acting as an understudy to Mark Tyler.[8] In September 2009, his contract was extended on a month-by-month basis, before signing until the end of the season on 15 January 2010.[9] He made his debut for Luton in the FA Cup in a 3–3 draw with Rochdale on 7 November 2009, and kept a clean sheet in a 2–0 replay victory four days later.[10] A single substitute league appearance followed on 30 January, though he failed to break into the first-team any further and was released from his contract on 7 May 2010.[11]

In the Summer of 2010, he signed for Chesham United of the Southern Premier League.
