Born in Enfield, London, Gentle played for non-league Boreham Wood before joining Luton Town. He failed to make the first-team at Luton, and moved to Colchester United.[1] He made his Football League debut on 30 April 1994, coming on as a substitute for Tony Cook in a 3–1 home win over Doncaster Rovers.[3] His final professional game was to come in the following game, coming on as a substitute for player-manager Roy McDonough who was also playing in his final game for the club. The away match at Carlisle United ended in a 2–0 defeat for the U's.[4][5]

After leaving Colchester, Gentle played for Chesham United, Enfield, St Albans City, Dagenham & Redbridge and Billericay Town.[1]
