Nigel Bradley Jemson (born 10 August 1969) is an English footballer, who represented his country at the Under-21 level and was the player-manager of Ilkeston Town, until May 2008. He finished his career at Rainworth Miners Welfare in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division.
Jemson played for a total of 12 English league clubs and one Scottish league club during his career, rarely lasting more than a season in each club.
In July 1996, Jemson joined Oxford United for a fee of £60,000. During his time there, he had loan spells with Watford, Coventry City, and Rotherham United, where he scored two goals in April 1996, which resulted in a 2–1 win against Shrewsbury Town, whom he later went to play 109 games for, in the Football League Trophy Final at the Wembley Stadium.
Jemson also gained national fame in January 2003, after scoring the goals that knocked Everton out of the FA Cup third round, during his time in Shrewsbury Town. He put the Shrews into a first half lead with a free kick, and after Niclas Alexandersson had equalised for Everton, he glanced a last minute header past Richard Wright, to give Shrewsbury Town another famous FA Cup victory, and one of the all-time greatest FA Cup games. Having earlier scored once against Stafford Rangers and twice against Barrow, his two goals against Everton took his tally to 5 in the competition meaning he ended up as top scorer.
In 2010, he replaced Eoin Jess in the Nottingham Forest's Masters team for the 2010 HKFC International Soccer Sevens tournament. As of 2011, Jemson currently plays for, and captains, Nottingham Forest's Masters team. On 27 January 2013 Nigel was reunited with his former Shrewsbury manager Kevin Ratcliffe at Wembley Stadium to make the draw for the 5th round of The F.A Cup
In 2011, Jemson was reported training as a fireman in Bingham, Nottinghamshire. He also maintains his interest in football and Nottingham Forest, starting a blog about his former team in October 2011.
