Scottish international goalkeeper Marshall was one of City’s marquee signings during the August 2016 transfer window and he made an impressive start to his career with a fine debut in the League Cup at Stoke. Alas, his arrival saw fans’ favourite Eldin Jakupovic dropped and when City’s defence began conceding multiple goals, Marshall became the lightning rod for supporters’ ire. Relegated to the Championship in 2017/18, Marshall was principally City’s Cup keeper as his Scottish counterpart Allan McGregor dominated the custodian role. He assumed the first team gloves again in 2018/19 and after a sloppy first game he turned in a string of man of the match performances that restored his reputation in full. Marshall made way for George Long to assume first team duties during April 2019 when it became clear the Scotsman was not to be offered a new contract by City, and he left the club that June.
Hailing from Glasgow, Marshall began his career at Celtic where he made occasional appearances over a five year period. In 2007 he joined Norwich City, initially on loan and then permanently, where he carved a role as first team regular. In 2009 he moved west to Cardiff City where he was a near ever-present for seven seasons, including an impressive debut season in the Premier League.
Marshall joined Wigan in July 2019, signing a two year contract, and was a regular for the Latics for a season. However the club’s descent into administration in 2020 meant David was offered a contract termination and in August 2020 he joined Championship side Derby County. In the 2020/21 season Marshall established himself as the Rams’ regular first team keeper, making 33 starts as the club flirted with but avoided relegation to League One.
Marshall played for Scotland under-21s before making his senior debut in 2004. For several seasons Marshall shared Scotland first eleven duties with City team-mate Allan McGregor, but Steve Clarke made Marshall his first choice keeper in 2019 and started him in all three matches during the delayed Euro 2020 Finals.
