David's first game for the Club was as a very young 10 y.o. with the Under 12's in 1977/78.

Over the next four seasons the Under 12's and Under 14's were runners-up before he was a member of a Premiership team in 1981/82 with the Under 14's.

David won the Under 16 Batting Award including a fine knock of 81 at Capital Reserve.

After 65 junior games, he moved into Senior ranks, playing in the Third XI Premiership of 1984/85. He went on to Captain the Second XI in 1988/89 to runners-up. One of David's highlights was captaining the Second XI to a flag in 1992/93, the season considered one of the Club's finest with our top two teams winning Premierships.

David held the position of Captain or vice-Captain of the Second XI and Third XI for the next 8 seasons. His steady and economical bowling saw him win 4 Bowling Awards.

David's energetic involvement as Social Convenor in 1996/97 lifted the profile of social activities at the Club, with many new initiatives including end of season trips, videos of social events and matches, and a Club Theme Song. He also promoted recognition of players' milestones with the Club.

David captained the Second XI and played his 200th game in Round 3 of the 2005/6 season.
