David Pryde joined Arsenal in May 1935 but headed to Margate soon after. He returned in September 1937, however, and made his senior debut 18 months later in a 2-0 victory over Sunderland.
The wing half's Highbury career was stunted by the outbreak of the Second World War, where he served with the RAF in India and Burma.

Pryde played 21 times during wartime and appeared regularly in the Football Combination, winning consecutive titles between 1937 and 1939.
But first-team football proved difficult to come by and the wide man was transferred to Torquay United in October 1946.
