Dave was a local youngster playing for Irthlingborough Diamonds when he came to the attention of Northampton Town. He went on the play 47 games for the Cobblers in two seasons before they went into administration, and had a brief spell with Kettering Town. He joined Diamonds just after the merger, and played in the first ever Rushden & Diamonds team back in 1992. He was played in all but two games during the 1993/1994 season, and the following year, was voted ‘Player of the season’. In all, Dave played 158 games for Diamonds in three seasons, mostly in the full back role, but injury at the end of that third season saw him fail to regain his place in the side the following season.

Early in 1996, he was sold to Gloucester City for £5,000 – just a few months before the club found themselves in financial difficulty. He was transfer listed in November 1997 due to his work commitments in Northamptonshire and the difficulty travelling to training sessions and after 78 games for Gloucester, he joined Raunds Town early in 1998. He then had a brief spell with Stewart & Lloyds in 1999 before eventually retiring from the game.
