David has extensive experience in the professional game, and his arrival at Mariners Park was quite a coup for the club in the summer of 2015.
The forward remains the youngest player to ever represent Hartlepool United, having made his senior debut in 2003, aged 16 years and 105 days.
He went on to play more than 100 times for Pools, and arguably the finest moment of his time at Victoria Park came when he netted a stunning long-range goal to seal an FA Cup giant-killing over Premier League side Stoke City in 2009. He also netted in a League Cup victory against West Bromwich Albion earlier that season.
During his time at Hartlepool, David had a short loan spell at Barrow, while he left the club in 2010 after agreeing a move to Caribbean-based outfit Puerto Rico Islanders.
While there, the pacy forward won the CFU Club Championship twice, as well as the USSF Division Two Professional League.
He moved to the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in 2013, but left the Florida-based outfit in 2014 after struggling with injury.
After a year out of the game, David was tempted back into football with a move to hometown club Shields.
He immediately hit the ground running, and although a hamstring injury kept him out for just over a month early in the campaign, he went on to have a key role as the club clinched the Northern League Division Two title.
