David Ogilby (born 2 June 1984) is a Northern Irish footballer currently playing for Coleraine. He is renowned for his exceptional height and presence in the box. He stands at 6 foot 4 inches and it is this intimidating height that has allowed him to score crucial goals throughout his career.
Ogilby was born in Derry and grew up in the village of Strathfoyle. He first began playing football in the streets, then later in the local youth club.Ogilby joined local youth team Moorfield at Under 10 level and continued playing with them to under 16 level.Ogilby then signed for Lisahally. It was at Lisahally where he was asked to play for the Institute youth team and subsequently progressed through to the first team
After playing only two games for Lisahally, Burns sent Ogilby on trial to Institute F.C. Ogilby has also represented Northern Ireland at under 23 level and has played for the Northern Ireland B team. Current manager, Liam Beckett as singled out Ogilby and his fellow defender, Mark Scoltock as the best defenders in the Irish Football Association. Institute fans have labelled Ogilby as "Institute's most committed player". On 30 January 2008, Derry City expressed keen interest, with hope of landing the promising Northern Ireland Under 23 star before the end of the British Transfer Window. Liam Beckett, while allowing Ogilby to discuss terms with Stephen Kenny and Derry City, was hesitant and wished to see the player remain at the Riverside. The transfer, however, did not go through in time, as negotiations broke down before the transfer window closed (at midnight, 31 January). Sources in the media have reported that the breakdown was largely due to the reluctance of the Institute board to let the player go. It is thought that Ogilby was valued at £15,000, a fee which Derry City may have considered too high. At the end of the season, on 20 June, reports surfaced that Ogilby had been attracting interest from Conference National side, Wrexham. The defender has been offered a two-week trial with the Welsh club, where he claims to be "in the shop window".
In August 2010, Ogilby joined Coleraine for an undisclosed fee. He made his debut a few days later against Lisburn Distillery and then scored his first goals for the club in a 4-0 win over Donegal Celtic.
