Peter Grummitt (born 19 August 1942) is an English footballer who played as a goalkeeper in the Football League during the 1960s and 1970s, most notably with Nottingham Forest.[1]

He made 352 senior appearances for Forest[2] before transferring to Sheffield Wednesday in 1970.[3]

During his time with Wednesday he made 130 senior appearances, and missed just one game during the 1970-71 season.[3] In April 1973 he played his last game for Wednesday,[3] before joining Brighton and Hove Albion, then managed by Brian Clough on loan after Brighton had been beaten 8-2 by Bristol Rovers in front of the TV cameras.[4] However, despite losing 4-1 on his debut against Tranmere Rovers Grummitt made over 100 league appearances for the Seagulls before joining Worthing F.C..[1]

He was capped on three occasions by England under-23 between 1961 and 1963.[5]
