David Mathieson (born January 18, 1978 in Dumfries, Scotland) is a retired Scottish professional association footballer. A goalkeeper, he played for Queen of the South and Gretna and made three appearances for Scotland at under 21 level.
Queen of the South
In 1997 Queen of the South reached the Scottish Challenge Cup final for the first time. Second Division Queens lost 1-0 to 1st Division Falkirk despite a rousing Queens display at Motherwell's Fir Park; a performance that included the man of the match award going to Queens veteran central midfield playmaker Tommy Bryce and an early career appearance for Jamie McAllister. A late chance for a Derek Townsley equaliser went agonisingly over for Queens. David Mathieson played in goals for Queens.
At the end of season 1998-99 David Mathieson was the Queen of the South fan club player of the year.
Mathieson left Palmerston Park in 2001 after five seasons.
After leaving Palmerston Park he rejoined his former QoS manager, Rowan Alexander who was now in the hot seat at non league Gretna. Gretna however successfully applied for admission to the Scottish League in 2002. The club were soon taken over by millionaire Brooks Mileson. Bank rolled by Mileson Gretna embarked upon an ambitious recruitment strategy. With high calibre players for the division on board, Mathieson picked up the 2005 Scottish Third Division championship.
Mathieson himself then found his position usurped by a new signing and found himself out of first team favour. He made only four appearances in season 2005/6 and his final appearance was in the Scottish Challenge Cup early in season 2006/07.
