Dave started his journey in the game at Shrewsbury Town where he was a regular member of the youth and reserve teams, on his release from the club he gained experience playing within the Welsh system. He captained both the Shropshire FA and the Shropshire S.C.F.A sides at U18 and U’19 levels. After making over 300 appearances for various clubs such as TNS, Newtown, Oswestry Town, Welshpool Town, Caersws & Guilsfield he then joined his local side Shawbury United (Midland Premier), he retired at the age of 26. His new venture within the game came in the form of Talent Identification and Scouting. With 2 years experience gained at Crewe Alexandra & Shrewsbury Town respectively in the youth departments he then joined Colchester United as Regional 1st team scout covering the Midlands area. Since then he has gained a wealth of experience and success both in recruitment and opposition analysis working for a number of clubs and managers throughout the UK such as Burton Albion, Hibernian, Blackpool, Bolton Wanderers, Carlisle United and Fleetwood Town. Dave’s scouting knowledge has already proved to be invaluable bringing some great young prospects into the company.
