Dave has served
Norwich as a player, manager and as the Assistant Director of the
Football Academy. He played 499 senior games for Norwich between
1965 and 1976 and played first as a full-back and then as a central
defender. He spent four years at Cambridge United before joining
Norwich as Youth team coach in 1980 leading the Youth team to FA
glory in 1983. When Ken Brown resigned in 1987, Dave
took over as manager and guided the Canaries to two FA Cup semifinals
and to 4th place in the old Division One. He resigned from the high-profile
and pressurised job as City's manager in May 1992 when the club
only narrowly escaped relegation.
He returned to coaching working with the A team in the Essex & Herts
Border Combination. He was then appointed as Assistant Director
of Norwich's Football Academy working with the younger players as
they prepare to become scholars at the club's football academy.
Dave retired in the summer of 2001
