Andy Bowman (7 March 1934 - 2 March 2009) was a Scottish footballer who played most of his career with Hearts. He played as a wing half.

He played for the Scottish schoolboy international side in 1949 which brought him to the attention of Chelsea who signed him in 1951 on his 17th birthday. He played only one game in Chelsea's league winning team of 1954 - 55. He moved to Hearts in 1955 for a transfer fee of £1,000. Bowman won the Scottish League in 1957 - 58 and 1959 - 60, and the 1959 Scottish League Cup Final while with Hearts. He made 135 appearances for Hearts, scoring eight goals.

He then signed for Newport County in 1961, before moving on to non-league Tonbridge. After a spell in the United States, he returned to Scotland, playing for Hamilton Academical and Hawick Royal Albert.

After retiring from football, he spent most of his working life with Scottish & Newcastle breweries. His son David followed him into professional football. He died on 2 March 2009, following a heart attack, having suffered from Alzheimer's disease during his latter years.
