David Booth is an English football coach and manager. He is currently coaching the Sisaket F.C. team. In England, he was manager of the English football clubs Grimsby Town (1982–1985) and Darlington (1987–1989).

David Booth was brought up in Darton near Barnsley and attended Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, Wakefield where he played rugby and cricket. Football was not played at his school. He left in 1965 with a consistent, if not very inspiring set of GCE 'O' Level results. Dave joined Barnsley FC and made his first team debut at 19 years of age at left back where he played most of his career. He was later signed by Laurie McMenemy, later of Southampton and the England coaching staff, who was then manager of Grimsby Town.

David Booth became manager of Grimsby Town in January 1982 with the Mariners at the bottom of the Second Division. A late upturn in form enabled Grimsby to escape relegation, and good form continued into the 1982-83 season with Grimsby as high as 4th after two-thirds of the season. However, failure to win their last 14 games meant that Grimsby only narrowly avoided relegation.
