Charles Percy McGahey (12 February 1871, Stepney, London, England – 10 January 1935 in Whipps Cross, Leytonstone, Essex, England) was a cricketer who played first-class cricket for Essex between 1894 and 1921. McGahey also played for London County between 1901 and 1904 and was named as one of the Wisden Cricketers of the Year in 1902. McGahey played two Test matches for England during Archie MacLaren's tour of Australia in 1901-02.
