Gary Chivers (born 15 May 1960 in Stockwell) is an English former footballer who played as a defender in the Football League for Chelsea, Swansea City, Queens Park Rangers, Watford, Brighton & Hove Albion, Bournemouth, and in the Norwegian Premier League for Lyn Oslo.

A central defender, Chivers began his career with Chelsea in 1979, and remained with the club until 1983, a poor period in the club's history.

He spent the summer of 1993 playing in Norway with Lyn Oslo before playing out his career at Bournemouth, retiring from professional football in 1995.
