Peter Charles William Sanders (born 7 September 1942) is a Welsh former association football and rugby union player. He played professional association football for Newport County and Gillingham before switching to rugby union and playing for Newport and Cross Keys.
Sanders was born in Newport and began his career playing association football as a centre forward for local team Newport County, one of the four Welsh clubs then playing in England's Football League. After a year as an amateur, he turned professional with the club in October 1959, soon after his 17th birthday. He went on to make three appearances for the "Ironsides" in the Football League Third Division, and was also selected for the Wales national youth team.
In July 1961 he left Newport to join Gillingham of the Fourth Division. He spent one season with the Kent-based club but was only selected to play for the first team twice. In July 1962 he dropped out of professional football and joined Prescot Cables of the Lancashire Combination.
After retiring from playing sport, Sanders became involved with promoting sport in the Pillgwenlly area of Newport. For 40 years he has run the local baseball club, St Michael's, serving variously as chairman, secretary and coach, and in 2007 won a "Services to Sport" award from the South Wales Argus for his work with the club.
