Profile: Dave, who needs no introduction to the supporters having been skipper and central defender for many seasons before a bad back injury forced him to stop playing midway through the 2014/15 season. Having returned to training with the club midway through last season he played a few games for Shrivenham before returning to Marine in preseason and attempting to return to the squad. He played a few preseason games as he looked to get back to full fitness and after a couple of impressive performances the manager signed him on for this 2018/19 season. Dave is a former Swindon Town defender who first signed for Marine from Worcester City in February 2010. Before that he made three senior appearances for Swindon Town before being released in 2004.

In May 2005 he signed for then Conference League club Tamworth and over the following four seasons he became a firm favourite with the fans, playing in an FA Cup tie against Premier side Stoke City in his first full season. His performances for Tamworth prompted a selection for the England Non-League side but injury prevented him making his debut. At the start of the 2008/09 season he signed for Conference side Worcester City but due to a cost cutting exercise before the start of the 2009/10 season he was released and signed for Marine in August and was made club captain in February 2011.
