Peter Cawley (born 15 September 1965) is an English former footballer who played as a defender.



Cawley is best known for his spell at Colchester United, where he made more than 200 appearances during his six years at the club between 1992 and 1998. He missed a crucial penalty as Colchester lost the 1997 Football League Trophy Final in a shootout against Carlisle United.

He also had a spell at Wimbledon from 1987 to 1989, making one appearance in the Football League First Division and also taking to the field at Wembley Stadium for the 1988 FA Charity Shield.

After retiring, Cawley spent time obtaining all his coaching qualifications and obtaining a BSc in Sports Science and Coaching. Having worked initially at Wimbledon FC's successful academy, he was recruited by Laurie Sanchez at Wycombe Wanderers. His stay here ended after a brief spell as assistant manager to Tony Adams. Following Adams' resignation in November 2004, Cawley was sacked by the club. He went on to work as a taxi driver in London.
