David came from Carse Thistle and progressed through the youth system at Tannadice. He was a Scotland Under-16, Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 international and has also reached full international level.

He became the youngest player to net an SPL goal when he scored against Hibs in March 2006. It took time to get established in the first team and he was on loan at Raith Rovers. By 2009-10 he was a regular in the side and collected a Scottish Cup winners medal in May.

After another successful term in 2010-11, in which he was Unitedís top scorer, there was considerable transfer speculation before he moved to Blackburn Rovers for a fee reported to be well in excess of £2m.

David returned to United on a six month loan from Blackburn at the start of the 2013-14 season. He couldn't recapture the form of his previous term despite scoring his first professional hat-trick in September and in January the following year, he returned to Blackburn.

International Debut:

After having played for Scotland U21s 9 times and scoring once, Goodwillie received his first call-up for the senior side in November 2010 for a friendly against the Faroe Islands. He made his debut in that match, coming on as a 76th-minute substitute for Kris Commons. After leaving United for Blackburn Rovers he scored his first goal for Scotland on 11 October 2011, from a penalty kick in a 3Ė1 defeat against world champions Spain.
