Gavin McGowan (born January 16, 1976 in Blackheath, England) is a retired English footballer, who played for Arsenal and more notably for Luton Town in the Football League Championship as a defender.

McGowan joined Arsenal's youth team in 1992 and was with the Premier League club for over 6 years and made 7 appearances (six in the Premier League, 1 in the FA Cup) for the London side. In 1994 he won the FA Youth Cup with Arsenal when they beat Millwall 5-3 in the final. Unable to win a first-team place, McGowan moved to Luton Town in the summer of 1998, having already spent a period on loan there

McGowan was initially a first-team player but an injury during 1999-2000 limited his appearances, and he left the club on a free transfer in 2001 after a clearout by new manager Joe Kinnear. Since then he has played in non-league football, including spells at Horsham, Hornchurch, Bromley, Redhill and Dulwich Hamlet.Gavin McGowan is now a P.E. teacher at Edenham High School in the borough of Croydon.
