David Mehew (born 29 October 1967 in Camberley, Surrey) is a former professional footballer who played in the Football League for Bristol Rovers, Exeter City and Walsall.[1] He previously managed Gloucester City.

He began his career at Leeds United, before moving to Bristol Rovers. He had a loan spell at Exeter City and later moved on to Walsall and Northampton Town before dropping down to non-league football.

Mehew worked as manager at Gloucester City between 2007 and 2014 having previously been assistant boss to Tim Harris at the club. He led them to promotion through the Southern Football League play-offs in May 2009 and took them into the first round proper of the FA Cup for the first time in 20 years where they lost to Football League One side Leyton Orient on 14 November 2012.[2] On 22 February 2014, his time with the club came to an end after he was sacked following a league game with North Ferriby United.[3]

In April 2014, he rejected a job offer to become manager at Cinderford Town.[4]
