Neil McEachnie is a former Canadian soccer player. He was a standout player that played for several teams, most notably the Vancouver City FC organisation of the 1950s and 1960s. In 1960, he represented Canada on a tour of the Soviet Union and Britain.[1]

In the Pacific Coast League, McEachnie won two championships with Vancouver City FC, first in 1958 (when the team was sponsored by Hale-Co) and then again in 1962-63 (when the team was known sponsored by Molson Canadian). Over a six-year span from 1958 to 1963, he was an all-star selection in four seasons.

McEachnie was one of the "most feared" goalscorers in the Pacific Coast League[2]. He scored more than 100 goals over the course of his career and was the top scorer in both 1958 and 1961-62[3].

Alongside his career in the Pacific Coast League, he also played in the Mainland Soccer League. He helped Capilano's win the 1958 BC Soccer Province Cup[4]. He also played in England at Arsenal F.C.[5]
