Attack/Defence Awareness Card: Balanced

Quick thinking attacking left full back, known for his passing and powerful shooting. Average speed and not so good tackler but high positioning was great and his fighting spirit was off the charts.

He was a ball boy at the 1966 World cup final in 1966 and then played himself in two League cup finals for Saints in 1976 & 1979. He became Lawrie McMenemy's first signing for Saints, a midfielder who went on to become one of the league's best Left-backs of his time. He was the clubs regular penalty taker and held the record as the highest scoring full back in the league. Eight England U21 caps and a call-up to the senior squad that toured South America in 1977 (he unluckily did not get a game), and an impressive penalty record (24 out of 26).

it had all started at Gillingham where, as a youngster, David had originally been a left-winger but when John Bond arrived as a coach he selected him at full-back for a match against Bristol City and so accomplished was his performance a professional contract was offered the next day. He certainly had all the assets of a top class full-back and must be regarded as one of the best wide defenders ever on Saints’ books.
