David McGowan (born 17 February 1988 in Glasgow) is a Scottish football midfielder currently with Montrose.


McGowan signed a YTS contract with the club in the summer of 2006,[1] and made his debut in Clyde's last game of the 2006-07 season as a substitute, against Dundee.[2] McGowan signed his first professional contract in July 2007.[3]

McGowan was used as a lone striker in several games under Colin Hendry. He scored his first senior goal, which turned out to be the winning goal in a Scottish First Division match against Dunfermline on 22 September 2007.[4] He scored his second goal the following week, in a 4-2 defeat at Livingston.

In October 2008, McGowan joined Arbroath as part of a one-month loan deal.[5] McGowan scored on his debut for Arbroath, and made 4 more appearances for them, scoring one more goal. He rejoined Arbroath on loan again in January 2009, playing with them until the end of the season.[6]

McGowan was released by Clyde in June 2009 alongside the other out of contract players, primarily due to the club's financial position.[7]
