David Cowan (born 5 March 1982 in Whitehaven, Cumberland) is an English football defender who plays for Dundee.

Cowan started his career with Newcastle United at Academy and reserve level before being released in 2002.

After trial spells at Walsall, Livingston, Wigan Athletic and Oldham Athletic, Cowan joined Motherwell but was to suffer a double ankle fracture in a game against Celtic that sidelined him for a year and put his playing career in some doubt.

Recovering fitness but failing to get back into the first team, he joined St. Johnstone before an 18 month stint in the Highland town of Dingwall with Ross County.

Returning to England for an unsuccessful trial at Blackpool, Cowan then played for Gretna but found himself a free agent when they were forced to resign from the Scottish Premier League in 2008.

Snapped up by Dundee within days of his former Newcastle reserve colleague Colin McMenamin made the same switch from Gretna and became a regular starter at Dens Park, earning an extended two-year deal.
