Gladstone Cleophas Small (born October 18, 1961 in St. George, Barbados) is a former England cricketer.

Small moved to England shortly after his 14th birthday, usually the point after which a change of nationality is not permitted. However, he applied for eligibility to play cricket for England, and the MCC accepted his application.

As a cricketer, Small did not have an outstanding reputation but was highly regarded as a committed team player. Primarily he bowled outswing, but his propensity for unreliable bowling gave selectors cause for concern. However, during the 1986-87 Ashes, Small was a last minute replacement for the fourth Test, and rose to the challenge, taking 5-48 in Australia's first innings and claiming two wickets in the second. He was given the Man of the Match award, but this was to be the highlight of his career. He was integral to the strong Warwickshire side of 1994, but retired soon after. As of 2005, he is a director of the Professional Cricketers' Association.

Small has Klippel-Feil syndrome, which accounts for his distinctive "no neck" appearance. [cite web

Gladstone small was one of the members of the English beach cricket team in 2006-07 and 2007-08.
