David Leworthy (born 22 October 1962) is an English former footballer who made his name as an intelligent centre forward.



A successful period at Farnborough Town was followed by a move to Dover Athletic, which saw the non-league transfer record broken when the Kent club paid £50,000. In January 1997 Leworthy moved to fellow Football Conference side Rushden & Diamonds, and his goals in the final 4 months of the season, including a debut goal against his former club Farnborough Town, helped ease the club away from the relegation zone and into a midtable finish. However, his stay at Rushden didn't last long, and at the end of the season he moved to South-West London club Kingstonian for a club record fee of £18,000.

Leworthy's career began to draw to a close with a period at Conference South club Havant & Waterlooville that included a spell as manager.

Leworthy came out of retirement in 2006 for a brief second spell at Kingstonian. He was named manager of Banstead Athletic of the Combined Counties League Premier Division in December 2007. He left Banstead in October 2008 and became joint manager of Croydon alongside Peter Thomas in November. Peter Thomas left the club in January the following year.
