Ian James Gould (born 19 August 1957 in Taplow, Buckinghamshire, England) is a first-class and Elite Panel cricket umpire and a former English cricketer.

He represented Middlesex (1975-1980 and 1996), Sussex (1981-1991) and Auckland in 1979/80 as a left-handed batsman and a wicketkeeper. He captained Sussex in 1987. He returned to Middlesex as a county coach between 1991 and 2000. He is now an ECB cricket umpire.

He toured the West Indies with the England Young Cricketers in 1976. He played 18 One Day Internationals for England in 1983 including that year's World Cup as a wicketkeeper/batsman. Wicket keeper Bob Taylor represented England in Test matches during 1983. Ian also played cricket in Devon, where he represented Budleigh Salterton and Exmouth but struggled to find form on the slower wickets in the South West. Gould also played football as a goalkeeper representing Slough Town and Arsenal, thus earning himself the nickname "Gunner".

As an Umpire, Gould was appointed to stand in 3 matches of the 2007 Cricket World Cup in the Caribbean. He umpired his first test match - South Africa v Bangladesh at Bloemfontein, Nov 19-22, 2008. Gould was promoted to the ICC Elite Panel of Umpires in 2009. [1]

Gould's passion for football was reaffirmed in July 2009 when he took over as chairman of Southern Football League club Burnham FC. In a press briefing, Gould confirmed to reporters that he was in it for the long haul, with the objective of pushing the Club towards Conference League football. More importantly, Gould is intent on developing the corporate side of the Burnham brand and conference centre facilities.

Elsewhere, his son Michael Gould has played cricket for Sussex second eleven.
