One of the founder members of WIFC, the good Doctor was between the sticks for the club’s very first game and remained the undisputed number one for many years. Dave often drew gasps from the opposition, as from behind they could have sworn he was a girl, and his WIFC highlights were being named Man of the Match in both the 2002 IFA Cup Final against and the Gibbsy testimonial, the latter display drawing compliments from no less than Glenn Hoddle. Inducted to the WIFC hall of fame in 2005, family commitments and old age finally saw Dave hang up his gloves in 2006.
