David McEachran (born December 5, 1903 in Clydebank, Scotland, died January 21, 1983 in Brampton, Ontario, Canada) was an early twentieth century Scottish football (soccer) wing forward who played professionally in Scotland, England, Canada and the United States.

In July 1924, McEachran signed with Clydebank F.C. in the Scottish Football League. In 1926, he moved to Preston North End of The Football League, playing only one league game on April 2, 1924.[1] That summer, he left Britain to sign with the Fall River Marksmen in the American Soccer League. In May 1927, the Marksmen crushed Holley Carburetor F.C. in the 1927 National Challenge Cup final. McEachran scored two of the Marksmen goals in their 7-0 victory. He began the 1927-1928 season with the Marksmen before transferring to the Boston Wonder Workers at the end of the season. When the ASL was declared an "outlaw league" in the summer of 1928, McEachran moved to the IRT Rangers in the Eastern Soccer League, a rival league created by United States Football Association.[2] He appeared to have returned to the Wonder Workers that season as he played twenty-four games in 1929-1929. The Wonder Workers folded at the end of the season and McEachran moved to the Boston Bears for the fall 1929 season. He then transferred to the New Bedford Whalers for the 1929-1930 season. After eight games, he moved to the Providence Gold Bugs. In May 1930, he moved back to Canada where he played with Montreal Carsteel of the National Soccer League, winning the Carls-Rite Cup as a member of the Montreal all-star team.[3] He was in Montreal as late as October 1932 when Montreal lost the league championship to Toronto Ulster.[4] He left Carsteel and signed with St. Johnstone in November 1932.[5] He finished his career with Clydebank F.C. and Beith F.C. in his native Scotland.[6]
