Stephen "Steve" Paul Gatting (born 29 May 1959) is an English former footballer, who is best known for playing for Brighton & Hove Albion in the 1983 FA Cup Final. He is currently a youth team coach at Arsenal.
Gatting started his career at Arsenal, joining as an apprentice in July 1975. He turned professional in 1977, and quickly rose up the ranks, making his first-team debut as a substitute against Lokomotiv Leipzig in a UEFA Cup match on 13 September 1978; Arsenal won 3-0. He immediately held down a first-team place, making 30 appearances in the 1978-79 season, although he did not make the cut for Arsenal's 1979 FA Cup Final-winning side, where they beat Manchester United 3-2 with a late Alan Sunderland goal.
Gatting continued to feature for Arsenal over the next two seasons, but the presence of Brian Talbot in the side meant he was never an automatic first-choice. In September 1981, having made 76 appearances with six goals to his name, he left Arsenal for Brighton & Hove Albion. There, he was part of the side that reached the 1983 FA Cup Final, which his team eventually lost to Manchester United in a replay. Gatting made over 300 appearances for Brighton in ten years, before finishing his career at Charlton Athletic, retiring in 1993.
