Marcel Garvey (born 21 April 1983) is an English rugby union player. He is first generation British born with Jamaican parents,. He went to St Peter's High School, Gloucester, the same school as former Gloucester teammate Ryan Lamb.

Garvey currently plays for Castres Olympique in France.

Garvey started his career at Gloucester where he made a staggering start to life with hat-trick of tries against Bristol. Whilst at Gloucester he started and scored a try in the 2003 Powergen Cup Final in which Gloucester defeated Northampton Saints.[2] He later moved slightly north in search of a new start. Electric wing Garvey signed a two-year deal with Worcester in May 2006 and is eager to show this season that he has lost none of his deadly finishing skills.

The winger has represented England A and England U21, being an integral part of the U21 World Cup team in 2004. He is also a member of the England Sevens set-up and played for the Barbarians.

In February 2008, Garvey signed a new two-year deal with Worcester which kept him at Sixways until 2010.

Garvey signed a deal with Castres Olympique in the South of France which means he left Worcester Warriors at the end of the 2011-2012 season.

He is former athlete Fiona May's cousin.
