Edward "Eddie" Devlin Connachan (born 27 August 1935 in Prestonpans, East Lothian) was a Scottish football goalkeeper who played for Dunfermline Athletic, Middlesbrough, Falkirk, East London Celtic and the Scotland national team.

He helped the club win the Scottish Cup for the first time in 1961 and he earned two caps for Scotland, against Czechoslovakia in 1961 and Hungary in 1962. He had earlier twice earned selection in the Scottish League representative side.

Connachan joined Middlesbrough in August 1963 for £5,500, returning to Scotland with Falkirk in November 1966. His final port of call was South Africa, where he played for East London Celtic before retiring. He still resides in the African state.

In March 2007 Connachan was inducted into Dunfermline Athletic's Hall of Fame.
