Promising Spurs youth midfielder David Hicks failed to move beyond that level at the club, but went on to have league experience with Northampton Town.
A well-built powerful player, David was unlucky to not make it through as Spurs beat a number of clubs to his signature when he was a schoolboy, who had been born in Enfield and attended Chase Community School. Had a good left foot and worked up and down the pitch to support the attack and help out the defence.
Joined the Cobblers after being released by Tottenham, where Colin Calderwood was in charge, having known Hicks from his time working with Spurs reserves. David only made the first team five times, but, on being released by Northampton, the midfielder signed for Stevenage Borough, before moving on to Hornchurch. From there, he joined Cheshunt in 2006, where his energetic displays could not prevent the Ambers being relegated.
Moved to Wealdstone from Cheshunt in 2009, having played for Chesham United before that, but he was unable to commit to the schedules the club had for training, as he had a long journey from his Cheshunt home, thus seeing him return to his local side in 2010.
