Steven James "Steve" McGavin (born 24 January 1969) is an English former professional footballer. He currently works as head of recruitment at Ipswich Town's academy.



Born in North Walsham, McGavin played non-League football for Sudbury Town in his late teens and early 20s, before being signed by Colchester United for £10,000 in July 1992. After scoring 17 goals in 58 games, he was signed by Birmingham City for £150,000 in January 1994. However, after 23 matches and only two goals, he was sold to Wycombe Wanderers for £175,000 in March 1995.

In January 1999 he was released by Wycombe, and in February signed for Southend United on a free transfer, but failed to score in eleven appearances. He signed for Northampton Town in August that year, but did not make a first team appearance. In October he returned to Colchester, where he made 75 appearances over two seasons.

After being released by Colchester in July 2001, he returned to non-League football and signed for Dagenham & Redbridge. He later moved on to Harwich & Parkeston (where he was player-manager), Stanway Rovers, Clacton Town, and Bury Town.

He recently played amateur football in Andalucia, Spain, for Real Benalmadena. He also trained the Alevines 'A' (U12's) team of Marbella Paraiso CF.

Steve has now returned to England, where he joined Colchester United's commercial department. He currently works as head of recruitment at Ipswich Town's academy, having taken on the role in August 2012.
