Gary Martin Stevens (born 30 August 1954) is a former English professional footballer. He was born in Birmingham.

Stevens was playing non-league football for Evesham United while working at a Herefordshire chicken factory, when he was spotted by Cardiff City, and signed for the club during the summer of 1978 for a £4,000 fee. He made his debut in September of that year, during a 7-1 defeat against Luton Town, and scored his first goal a week later on his home debut in a 2-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers. Gary went on to score a total of thirteen goals in all competitions in his first year. The following year he finished as the clubs joint top scorer, along with Ray Bishop, scoring eleven goals, and went on to claim the award again during the 1981-82 season.

Following the end of the season he joined Shrewsbury Town for £20,000. He spent four years at the club before ending his career with spells at Brentford and Hereford United. He also was also player coach at Mid Wales League side Knighton Town.

He is now a college tutor and the youth team coach at Cheltenham Town, alongside Colin Williams.
