From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

David Unsworth (born October 16, 1973 in Liverpool, England) is an English football (soccer) player, born in 1973. He currently plays for Sheffield United.

Unsworth began his career at Everton, and was part of the 1995 FA Cup winning team. After several impressive seasons at Everton, Unsworth transferred to West Ham United for the 1997-98 season. After only a season he was signed by Birmingham-based club Aston Villa for £3million. However, his family didn't settle in Birmingham and after only a month, before the season had even begun, he returned to Everton, the Liverpool based club paying Villa the same £3million they had accepted only a few weeks before.

Unsworth was a consistent performer in his second spell with Everton, being first choice left-back, but also scoring some vital goals in his role as dead-ball specialist. At the end of the 2003/04 season however his contract expired, and disagreement with the club over the length of a new contract led to Unsworth leaving on a free transfer.

He was signed by Portsmouth for the 2004/05 season. He made his debut in a 1-1 home draw with Birmingham City, scoring the equaliser from a penalty. However, following the resignation of manager Harry Redknapp, Unsworth lost his place, and spent the second half of the season on loan at Ipswich Town F.C.

At the start of the 2005/06 season he was signed by Sheffield United on a three-year contract after it became clear that Ipswich Town could not afford his wages.

Unsworth has been capped once by England, in the 2-1 victory against Japan at Wembley on June 3, 1995. Other debutants that day included Gary Neville and Stan Collymore.
