Chris Burns (born 9 November 1967) is a former footballer.

He formerly played for UD Horadada, who compete in the Valencian Preferente in Spain, but in January 2009 left the club on mutual terms due to the economic down turn as the main board members, property developers Piensa, went into liquidation and forced Horadada to cut back dramatically.

He helped Portsmouth to the 1992 FA Cup semi final, but they lost on a penalty shootout to Liverpool.

He is currently working as a coach for Cheltenham Town under 16s,[1] and occasionally turns out for local Gloucester Northern Senior League side Brockworth Albion.

In April 2014, he replaced John Brough as manager at Southern League side Bishop's Cleeve.[2] However, he resigned from the role in June 2014.[3] A month later he was named manager of Brockworth Albion.
