Carl Saunders (born 1964-11-26) is a former professional footballer, who spent most of his career at Stoke City and Bristol Rovers.

During his time at Bristol Rovers, he was nicknamed Billy Ocean due to the fact he slightly resembled the singer. After leaving Bristol Rovers he had brief spells as a non-contract player with Oxford United and Walsall, before moving to Malta to join Sliema Wanderers in 1994. He had a successful season scoring 18 goals in 17 games in the Maltese Premier League. The following season he played a single European game for Hibernians.

After retiring from playing, Saunders joined Avon and Somerset Constabulary as a community affairs co-ordinator, and on 17 October 2006, he returned to Bristol Rovers in a voluntary capacity as the club's Community Liaison Officer. Carl still does work for Bristol Rovers. He has 2 daughters called Jade and Casey and a son called CJ.
