James McEwen (born Bootle, Liverpool, 16 October 1872; died 1942) also known as Jimmy McEwen or "Punch" McEwen was an English professional footballer and coach.

McEwen started his playing career with Bootle, before moving south to join Luton Town. After one season, he then joined Glossop North End for their first season in the Football League. At the end of the season, North End gained promotion to the First Division. The club then changed their name to Glossop but finished the 1899–00 seaason at the foot of the table.

McEwen then moved on to Bury, where he won the FA Cup in 1903, with a crushing 6–0 victory over Derby County. After three years at Gigg Lane, he returned for a spell at Luton Town (now in the Southern League), before joining Norwich City, initially as a player, before taking on the role of manager. McEwen was City's second manager, and was in charge for 43 matches between 1907 and 1908, winning 13, losing 20 and drawing 10 games[1]

After leaving Norwich City he returned to Glossop as a player for the 1911–12 season. He then joined Fulham as a scout before in 1914 he joined Arsenal's coaching staff, working under manager George Morrell.[2] After Morrell's resignation in 1915, McEwen took charge of first-team affairs at the club during the remained of World War I, becoming the de facto caretaker manager of the team, which played in the London Combination.[2][3] After the war had ended he was replace by Leslie Knighton for the start of the 1919–20 season, but McEwen continued to stay with the club, working as a dressing-room attendant[2] and as a coach under Herbert Chapman.[4]
