Gary Micklewhite (born 21 March 1961) was an English footballer who played in The Football League for Queens Park Rangers, Derby County and Gillingham in the 1980s and early 1990s.

Born in Southwark, London, Micklewhite began his career as a schoolboy with Manchester United, signing for them in March 1976.[1] He turned professional on 23 March 1978,[1] but despite being a regular in the club's reserve team,[1] he could not break into the first team and signed for Queens Park Rangers on 4 July 1979.[1] He came on a free transfer, signed by former United boss Tommy Docherty, and made his debut in a 2-0 win against Blackburn Rovers in October 1981. Micklewhite came on as a substitute for Clive Allen in the 1982 FA Cup Final and started the replay, scoring a goal which was disallowed. In all, Micklewhite played 97 league games scoring 11 goals for QPR before moving to Derby County in 1985.[2][3][4]
