A brisk left-arm seamer, David made his first class debut for Gloucestershire in 2009. That summer, he was given his chance for Gloucestershire in one-day cricket and took 7 for 29 – including four wickets in four balls – against Essex at Chelmsford in a 40-over match. It was the best haul by a Gloucestershire bowler in one-day cricket.
David had been part of Gloucestershire’s academy for a year before he was first picked for England Under-19s’ trip to South Africa in January 2009 and, at the end of the year, found his way onto the ECB Elite Player Development Programme. He played five of England’s six matches at the 2010 Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand and took 10 wickets at 14.20.
Without a doubt, one of David’s most memorable moments came in the 2015 Royal London One-Day Cup final win over Surrey. Bowling the last over, David dismissed both Sam Curran and Gareth Batty to secure Gloucestershire’s first piece of silverware in 11 years. David has gone on to be one of the most respected opening bowlers on the county circuit in all formats of the game and continues to push for higher honours.
