Ross Caven (born 4 August 1965 in Glasgow) is a retired Scottish footballer who spent his entire career with amateurs Queen's Park, making over 500 league appearances.

Caven made his debut for Queen's Park at the age of 17 in a 2 - 0 defeat by Clydebank at Kilbowie Park on 25 September 1982. He made his 500th appearance for Queen's Park when they beat Stenhousemuir in January 1999. Caven was club captain when Queen's Park won their first and only trophy of his years at Hampden, the Scottish Football League Third Division championship in 1999 - 00. On 15 April 2000, he broke the 80 year old Queen's Park appearance record set by J.B. McAlpine, as Queen's Park defeated Montrose 2 - 0 at Links Park. He also scored 96 league goals for the club.

Caven retired from playing in June 2001 and joined the club's committee. The team struggled in the early part of the 2001 - 02 season, however, and Caven made a comeback. He finally retired at the end of that season, as Queen's Park finished 10th in the Third Division. He is still serving on the club committee.
