David Theobold is a 50 year-old machinist supervisor who works in Anaheim, California. An affable Englishman with an infectious smile and engaging manner of speech, David grew up in Sheffield and moved to California as a young man. He immediately took to the lifestyle in southern California, preferring it to the rain and clouds of his native England. Starting at the entry level in his machine shop, David worked his way up to supervisor through persistence, hard work, ability, and brains. Before long he became a citizen, never forgetting his English roots or his passion for soccer.
From childhood until a few years ago David could always be found on the soccer field, where his speed and durability made him valuable at any position. After a leg injury severely curtailed his playing time, he put more emphasis into coaching, and has become a source of expertise and authority for local players. Keeping in touch with the close-knit community of British residents in the Anaheim area, David has always been one of the first to organize events, donations, support, and outreach to his countrymen and their families in times of trouble.
