David Tyrie
Norwich Career: 2003 (Academy)
Current Club: Western Massachusetts Pioneers (USA)
Date of Birth: 05/02/1985 (Norwich) 
Nationality: English


Young central defender David Tyrie played for Norwich City's Under 19s in their 1-0 victory over Millwall on 15th February 2003. Tyrie was then on Spurs' books playing for their Under 19s. He was born in Norwich, attended City of Norwich school and captained the Norwich Schools side. He played for City's schoolboys as a central midfielder before joining Tottenham.

Further appearances followed for Norwich's academy side and he also turned out for Nowich's reserves against Luton on 12th March 2003.

At the beginning of April 2003, Norwich announced that they would take over David's scholarship for his final year, making him a member of the Norwich City academy. Assistant Academy Director Adrian Boothroyd said "I know Colin Watts had been tracking his progress at Spurs and we moved very quickly to bring him back to Norwich". Academy Director Sammy Morgan said in the summer of 2003 that "His challenge is to show us he has the necessary qualities in that position (central defence). We're hoping that he and Greg Crane will push each other to greater heights."

Norwich announced at the end of November 2003 that David would not be offered a professional contract with the Canaries. He joined Cambridge United on trial but was injured in his first game for them. At the beginning of December, he followed that well-worn route of many Norwich youngsters in signing for Wroxham, making his debut in the defeat of AFC Sudbury. He joined Cambridge again on trial in January 2004 playing against Norwich's reserves on 14th January and scoring in a 2-2 draw. He then trialled with Tony Adams' Wycombe Wanderers during the first week of February 2004. He was then linked with trials at Rushden & Diamonds and Bristol Rovers during February 2004.

The NonLeague Daily website reported on 12th March that David had joined Heybridge Swifts of the Ryman League. He is one of four new additions to the Swifts line-up with James Pullen, Rory Hutton and Shane Huke had also joined on loan from Peterborough. After a couple of appearances for the Swifts, David returned to Wroxham where he scored the winning goal in the 200 Norfolk Cup final against Diss Town.

David left Wroxham in the summer of 2004 for a soccer scholarship in the USA but this fell through and he has returned to Wroxham again. The following September, David did depart for the USA, joining the Central Conecticutt State University and playing for their Blue Devils men's soccer team.

He is currently playing for the Western Massachusetts Pioneers
