David Cork (born 28 October 1962 in Doncaster) is a former professional footballer who played for many English sides in the 1980s.

Having played for Yorkshire Schoolboys, Cork was signed by Arsenal in 1978 on schoolboy forms, turning professional in 1980. Mainly a reserve-team player during his time at the club, he made his debut on 17 December 1983 against Watford in the First Division, a game Arsenal won 3–1. He made eight appearances in the 1983–84 season, scoring one goal against Southampton in December 1983, with the last one coming against Liverpool on 11 February 1984. However he did not play a single match during 1984–85 and he was released by the club in summer of 1985.

Cork went on to play for Huddersfield Town, West Bromwich Albion (on loan), Scunthorpe United and Darlington.[1]
