David Beaumont (born December 10, 1963 in Dunfermline) is a retired Scottish footballer who played for Dundee United, Luton Town and Hibernian.

As a youth, Beaumont won the Under-18 European Championship with Scotland in 1982 and reached the quarter-finals of the resulting 1983 Under-20 World Championships. A versatile defensive midfielder, Beaumont made the breakthrough into the Dundee United first team during the 1983 - 84 season, but found it hard to get a regular spot in a defence with a back four of Malpas, Gough, Hegarty and Narey. He was used as cover for all four, and appeared as a defensive midfielder occasionally over the next couple of seasons.

Beaumont spent nearly half of the 1986-87 season in the starting eleven, his best run in the first team, making 40 appearances, and played in six matches of United's UEFA Cup run that season, including an appearance as substitute for Paul Sturrock in the 1st leg of the Final in Gothenburg. Beaumont left for Luton Town midway through the 1988-89 season, for whom he appeared in the 1989 Littlewoods Cup Final.

He returned to Scotland with Hibernian in October 1991. Weeks later, he was an unused substitute as they beat Dunfermline Athletic in the Skol Cup Final. Injuries hampered him after this, however, and he was forced to quit the senior game in 1994. Beaumont is now a police officer in Fife, playing for the Scottish Police team.
