Peter William John Gelson (18 October 1941 – 27 April 2021) was an English professional footballer who played as a centre back and wing half in the Football League for Brentford. A cult hero amongst the club's supporters, he is third on the all-time Brentford appearances list with 516. In 2013, Gelson placed second in a Football League 125th Anniversary poll of Brentford's all-time fan favourites and was inducted into the Brentford Hall of Fame in November 2014.

Career
Brentford
Joining Brentford at a young age, Gelson progressed through the club's youth, 'A' and reserve teams before making his professional debut at age 19 in a 2–0 Third Division defeat to Halifax Town on 22 August 1961. Despite still being a part-time player, Gelson quickly established himself in the first team as a wing half, making 28 appearances during the 1961–62 season, a campaign which saw Brentford relegated to the Fourth Division.
Gelson was a key player in Brentford's 1962–63 Fourth Division title-winning season and made 32 appearances, but he remained part-time and did not sign a professional contract until 1964. He was awarded the captaincy in August 1966, but a loss of form saw him lose it to Bobby Ross four months later. Gelson was known for his long-range goals and scored three times from behind the halfway line. A "hard man" as a player, in 1970 he ended the career of Colchester United's Bobby Howlett in a challenge which resulted in a broken leg for the Us defender.
Gelson went on to be a fixture at centre back until his final appearance for the club in September 1974. He left Brentford shortly after, having made 516 appearances in all competitions for the club. In recognition of his service to the club, Gelson was awarded testimonials in 1970 and 1975, earning him £3,630. He was inducted into the Brentford Hall of Fame in November 2014 and remained a season ticket holder up until the final seasons at Griffin Park.
Non-league football
After his departure from Brentford, Gelson played on in non-League football, appearing for Hillingdon Borough (two spells), Hounslow and Walton & Hersham.
Personal life
In his early days as a part-time player at Brentford, Gelson worked in telecommunications for the Post Office. His Brentford teammate Gordon Phillips remained a lifelong friend and their pair were godparents to each other's children. After retiring from football, Gelson found work at Heathrow Airport and worked in security with British Airways and Qatar Airways. He worked for a number of years in Doha, Qatar as a loadmaster for Khalifa bin Hamad Al Thani's multiple private aircraft. He retired and returned to the UK in 2007. Gelson was married and as of June 2010, had five grandchildren.
