Ex-Sky Blue Defender McNamee Hits 43 Today, celebrate Him..

CCFPA would like to greet former Sky Blue defender David McNamee a very ‘Happy Birthday’ on this special day! David, who was born in Glasgow on October 10, 1980, is 43 years old today.

David began his career with St Mirren in 1997, where he made 24 first-team appearances before heading south of the line to join Blackburn Rovers in 1999, where he failed to make the Premiership team. When he returned to his home country with Livingston in 2002, he soon regained his feet, making over 100 appearances (four goals) for the Scottish Premier League club and earning international recognition (four Scotland caps).

David was bought for £100,000 in June 2006 after impressing the Sky Blues during four seasons with the Scottish club.



Despite establishing himself as a tenacious defender during his time in the Championship with CCFC under three Sky Blues managers, (Association member) Micky Adams, Iain Dowie, and Chris Coleman, his City career was cut short by hamstring and related muscle strains. Chris eventually opted not to renew David’s contract in July 2008. Between 2006 and 2008, he made 29 league games for the Sky Blues (without scoring).

Plymouth Argyle signed him almost immediately and he spent another two seasons with the Argyle before returning north to play for Aberdeen (one season) and Ross County (six months) in 2010 before heading south to non-league Midlands football with Nuneaton Town and Leamington Town in 2012.

He then returned to City’s Academy but determined in 2015 that he would not be able to find the proper personal resources to be a successful coach and instead joined the Royal Navy, preparing to become a mine warfare specialist while his coaching career was put on hiatus.

We’re not sure where David’s postings have led him right now, but wherever he is, we hope he has a wonderful day today and hope to see him again at one of our reunions in the future.


David, happy birthday!!
