David Seal (born 26 January, 1972) is an Australian football (soccer) player who last played for Bitton A.F.C. in the Western Football League Premier Division in England. He represented Australia at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Spain. He plays as a striker.

He started his career in the old National soccer league (NSL) in Australia where he played for Sydney Croatia, Marconi Stallions and Sydney Olympic and was the NSL top goal scorer two years in a row in the 1989/1990 season with Sydney Croatia scoring 14 goals and the 1990/1991 season with Marconi Stallions scoring 19 goals.

He moved to Europe in 1993, joining Belgian side Eendracht Aalst in Belgium. He had a trial with Norwich City while at Eendracht but no contract was offered. In October 1994 he moved to England, joining Bristol City for a fee of £80,000. He moved to Northampton Town on loan in August 1997, scoring four times in six league games during his loan spell. Such was his form that the move was made permanent, Seal costing the Cobblers £90,000, on September 12, 1997.

He finished his first season with Northampton as their leading goalscoring, with 14 goals in league and cup games. He was also the leading goalscorer for their reserve side with 12 goals in 10 games. He remained with Northampton until May 1999 when he was released after Northampton's relegation to Division Three.

He returned to Australia to play for Northern Spirit in the NSL where he scored 9 goals in 20 appearances. However, after just one season he returned to England where he joined Mangotsfield United in July 2000. In the 2001-02 season he scored 11 goals in the FA Cup for Mangotsfield, earning him an award as the FA Cup's leading goalscorer. He scored 166 goals in 236 appearances for Mangotsfield, before joining local rivals Yate Town F.C. in July 2006 [1].

His stay with Yate lasted only four months, Seal returning to Mangotsfield United in December 2006 [2].

In March 2007, he joined Western Football League Premier Division side Bitton A.F.C. but has since left the club.

David currently works as a Personal Trainer.
