Gary Powell (born 2 April 1969) is an English footballer. He is currently First-team coach at Chester F.C..

In November 1990, he joined Scunthorpe United on a month's loan: scoring in his second game against York City but failing to appear in a winning side during his stay.

He joined Altrincham in December 1993, debuting in the 1 0 Football Conference victory at Witton Albion on 18 December 1993. He scored a solitary league goal for the club in the 2 0 home victory over Dover Athletic on 26 February 1994 before moving on to Macclesfield Town at the end of March. He scored twice in the Football Conference for the Silkmen, netting the winner in the 1 0 home win over Welling United on 2 May and the equaliser in the final match of the season five days later, a 1 1 draw at Northwich Victoria.

In July 2002 he left TNS to join Rhyl for a third time. He scored Rhyl's first goal in European football in the 3 1 home UEFA Champions League qualifying defeat to Skonto Riga on 21 July 2004. A year later, his 60th minute goal in a 3 2 away defeat enabled Rhyl to become only the second Welsh Premiership side to win a European tie after beating FK Atlantas on away goals in the UEFA Cup first qualifying round. In June 2010 he was appointed first-team coach at Chester.
