Archibald "Archie" Gorman (born 10 April 1909) was a Scottish footballer who played as a wing half.

Born in Edinburgh, he was a modern-day holding midfielder.[2] Gorman began his career in his hometown with Edinburgh City before being signed by fellow Scotsman Bob Jack for Plymouth Argyle in 1931.[3]

Regarded as a tencious tackler,[2] his energy and determination was a big feature of the Pilgrims team in the 1930s, along with the attacking prowess of Jack Leslie and Sammy Black. His Football League career with the club was ended by the Second World War, but Gorman returned to assist the team rebuild after the war as player-coach.[3]
