Ludovic Gamboa (born 14 January 1986) is a French footballer who currently plays as an attacking midfielder for Ligue 2 club Le Havre. He started his career with Chamois Niortais, making his debut in the 3–0 away win over Romorantin on 14 January 2006. After coming on as a second-half substitute for Ronan Biger, Gamboa scored the third goal in the 89th minute. He made two more substitute appearances in the 2005–06 season, both of which were also Niort victories.[1] Gamboa is of Portuguese descent.[2]

Gamboa joined Martigues on a free transfer in July 2007,[3] but he failed to make an impact at the club; his four appearances all came from the substitutes' bench. He left Martigues in January 2008 and signed for Championnat de France amateur (CFA) side Fontenay-le-Comte. During the remainder of the 2007–08 season, Gamboa played three league matches. In the summer of 2008 he switched clubs again, joining CFA Group A club Compiègne.

After scoring 11 goals in 33 matches for Compiègne, Gamboa returned to the Championnat National when he signed for Reims ahead of the 2009–10 campaign. He scored on his debut for Reims in the 1–3 defeat away at Hyères on 7 August 2009. Gamboa ended the season with 6 goals in 17 appearances, helping Reims win promotion to Ligue 2 after only one season in the third tier. He played 32 league games in total for Reims during his two seasons with the club, scoring seven times. In May 2010, it was announced that he had signed for fellow Ligue 2 side Laval.[4] During his first season at Laval, he scored three goals in 31 appearances as the team finished 16th in Ligue 2.
