David signed for Shildon AFC in May 2021 from Darlington FC.

David who grew up in Shildon started his career at Middlesbrough and played in a variety of defensive and midfield positions. During his time Middlesbrough, he had a loan spell at Carlisle, and helped them avoid relegation in 2015 eventually making his move permanent. He played for the Cumbrians in the FA Cup against Everton – and played a season there before moving to Blyth.

In his first spell at Blyth, he helped them win promotion to the National League North in season 2016-17, before he had a spell at IBV Vestmannaeyjar in Iceland, helping them win the Icelandic Cup and Europa League qualification before a second move to Blyth and a return to Iceland and played in the Europa League.

A third spell at Blyth in 2019 helped them into the National League play offs, in which they were narrowly beaten by Altrincham. At the end of the Season he became a free agent at the end of the season, and signed for Darlington FC.
