As a full back, David played both junior and senior football for Sturt until the early 90’s.

David has been involved in IT for more than 25 years, he started his business in Melbourne over 25 years ago and has been back in Adelaide for the last 15 years.

He still keeps active by playing touch footy each week, where he still manages to find a bit of form.
