John Neil Shepherd (born 9 November 1943) is a former West Indian cricketer who played in five Test matches from 1969 to 1971. Shepherd had a long career in English county cricket for Kent County Cricket Club and Gloucestershire County Cricket Club. He was born in Belleplaine, St Andrew in Barbados and played for the Barbados cricket team in his early career.
Although Shepherd's Test career was short, he played a remarkable amount of first-class cricket in a variety of venues: he played in both South Africa and Rhodesia, played 15 years for Kent and seven for Gloucestershire. He was the Cricket Professional at Eastbourne College in the early 1990s and President of Kent for 2011 where, as of 2017, he sits on the Committee.
