David Armstrong (English footballer)

David Armstrong, born Durham, 26 December 1954 is a former footballer who played most of his career for Middlesbrough (from 1972-1981), before moving to Southampton in August 1981 where he played for a further six seasons. He finished his league career by playing for AFC Bournemouth in 1987–1988.

He was Southampton FC's Player of the Season in 1983-1984, and he also made three appearances for the England international team between 1980 and 1984.

At Middlesbrough, Armstrong was noted for his remarkable durability - for many years he was ever-present in the #11 shirt, and as a testament to this was awarded a testimonial whilst aged only 25. He holds the Boro' record for most consecutive appearances with 305 consecutive league games and 358 consecutive games in all competitions between March 1972 and August 1980.
