The attacking midfielder signed for Oxford United in August 2001, and spent two seasons at the Kassam Stadium, before spending the following two season with Bristol Rovers. Dave joined Diamonds on 19 May 2005 on a free transfer, and he was named Club Captain by manager Barry Hunter. He lost this role the following season after the arrival of Chris Hope, but he led out the team for his final game against Burton Albion in April 2007.
