Born 19 September 1963 in Rotherham.
Released by Eddie Gray at Leeds Utd in August 1982, Posh manager Martin Wilkinson snapped up the 19 year old goalkeeper who went on to win three 1st Division/Premier League Championship medals, four FA Cup winner medals, four FA Community Shield winner medals, a League Cup winners medal and a UEFA Cup Winners Cup medal with Arsenal and 75 full international caps for England.
David made his Posh debut on the opening day of the 1982/83 season against Stockport County, a game which Posh drew 1-1 despite finishing with only 9 men after Neil Firm and Trevor Slack had been sent off.
His talent was evident producing many inspired performances in just over the two seasons he spent at the Posh. David had the knack of saving penalties and it was no surprise when he received a call up to the England U21 squad which led to interest being shown by bigger clubs in him.
Having made 106 League, FA Cup and League Cup appearances for the Posh, in October 1984 David signed for Birmingham City for £100,000 where he helped them to promotion to the 1st Division.
Did you know: David became a TV personality and with just 8 days to prepare, he along with Zoia Birmingham won TV’s 2005 Strictly Ice Dancing competition when he replaced Paul Gascoigne in the TV show.
