"Although I have played bridge all my adult life, family and work commitments kept me from top level bridge until 1997. During the next four years I was in teams which won the BBL Premier League twice, the Gold cup twice, Crockfords three times and the Spring Fours, partnering Tom Townsend, Tim Rees and David Price. I was also in a team which made the quarter finals of the World Open Teams (the Rosenblum Cup) in 1998.
In 2001 I relocated to Switzerland where over the years I won an equivalent range of local titles and represented the country on three occasions. I found Swiss bridge too limiting so I have recently switched my allegiance back to England, although I remain resident in Switzerland.
In 2014 I was delighted to be in teams which won gold in the European seniors, the Commonwealth games, and Crockfords."
Since writing this biography, David was part of the England team which reached the quarter-finals of the D'Orsi Trophy at the 2015 World Bridge Championships, and he won the 2015 Premier League and 2016 Crockfords Cup. He was a member of the successful 2016 Camrose team.
