Kenneth Leroy Charlery (born 28 November 1964), is a former St Lucian international footballer, who has played club football in England with Birmingham City and for Basildon United, Watford, Peterborough United, Boston United and Barnet, among others.

Ken Charlery obtained legendary status in his first spell at Peterborough United by scoring two goals in the 1992 3rd Division Play Off Final including an 89th-minute winner. Ken left Posh in the 1992/93 season to sign for Watford but returned the following year for a second spell at the club but was unable to save them from relegation to the old Second Division. He was named as captain by new Posh manager, John Still for the 1994/95 season; he was voted player of the year, the second time he'd received the accolade. He moved to Birmingham in 1995 but was back for a third spell with Posh in 1996. In the 1996/97 season he endured a run of twenty-four scoreless games, which saw him depart for the final time. He is still known affectionately as King Kenny at London Road.

He was working as Assistant Manager at Harrow Borough, before joining Peterborough United as an assistant coach to help Andy Legg and Barry Fry with coaching responsibilities until the end of the 2005-2006 season.

Charlery returned to Harrow Borough, where as assistant manager, he helped them gain a place in the play-offs of the Isthmian League Premier Division in 2010-11. In the summer of 2011 he moved to St Albans City to be assistant manager under David Howell.

In November 2015, Charlery was appointed manager of Ware.[2]
