David William Proctor (born 4 May 1984) is a Scottish association football player who recently played for Airdrieonians. Proctor signed for Canadian club FC Edmonton in July 2012, having previously played in his native Scotland for Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Dundee United and Airdrie United.
A right-sided player, Proctor began his professional career with Hibernian but didn't make an appearance and joined Inverness Caledonian Thistle in 2003. After three years with the Highlanders, which included winning the Scottish First Division in his first season, Proctor signed for Dundee United. Proctor was managed for a second time by Craig Brewster, who had been appointed United manager earlier that year.
Following Brewster's departure from Tannadice just two months later and Craig Levein's subsequent arrival, Proctor was set to move to Airdrie United in January 2007, only for FIFA to confirm Proctor's reserve appearance for Inverness in August 2006 counted and prevented him for playing for a third club within a year. The ruling was similar to the case of Javier Mascherano, whose January 2007 move from West Ham United to Liverpool received FIFA support but depended on Premier League permission. Both moves were eventually allowed.
After helping Airdrie to Scottish First Division play-off victory and thus ensuring the avoidance of relegation, Proctor returned to United, featuring in three pre-season friendlies against lower league opposition. Proctor was an unused substitute in the first two matches of the 2007–08 season before leaving by mutual consent on 31 August to return to Inverness Caledonian Thistle. Proctor left Inverness at the end of the 2011–12 season. He signed for Canadian NASL club FC Edmonton in July 2012. He left Edmonton in November 2013, after failing to agree a new contract.
Proctor then returned to Scotland and signed for Airdrieonians in July 2014. Although he was released from his playing contract due to injury in February 2015 Proctor agreed to continue at Airdrieonians in a scouting capacity.
