David Andrew Rowson (born 14 September 1976) is a Scottish former footballer.
He started his professional career at his home town club Aberdeen, whilst at Aberdeen was a key member of the side that made the Scottish Cup final in 2000. He returned from a loan spell at Livingston halfway through the season where he was sent to recuperate from a knee injury. During the last 10 games of season 1999–00, he did enough to merit his place in the side to play Rangers in the Scottish Cup Final, ahead of fans favourite Hicham Zerouali.
In 2001, he earned a move to Stoke City. However, injuries blighted his time there, limiting him to only 18 appearances and consequently, he returned north of the border to join Partick Thistle. After playing there for a season, he announced his desire to move to an English club in the summer, sparking a host of clubs bidding for his signature, and he joined League Two side Northampton Town on a two-year contract.
He impressed in his time at Sixfields, and despite injuries in the 2005–06 season, he was an important figure in Northampton's push for promotion. However, after the final game of the season, then manager Colin Calderwood decided to not offer Rowson a new contract. He then joined Darlington and later had a spell at Boston United, before rejoining Partick Thistle in July 2007.
Rowson won most of the Player of the Year Awards at Partick Thistle following the 2007–08 season, when he played every minute of all but 2 league matches. He scored his first goal upon his return to the Jags against Livingston on 28 February 2009, with a 25-yard pile driver, having had several similar chances since his return fail narrowly. He left Partick Thistle on 30 January 2013 after agreeing to terminate his contract at Firhill Stadium. He ended his career with Stenhousemuir.
