David Brooks Biography, EarlyLife

He was born on 8 July 1997 (age 26), in Warrington, a big town near Liverpool. He was born in England to an English father and a Welsh mother, making him eligible to play for both countries. He joined the Manchester City Academy when he was seven years old. He joined Sheffield United in 2014 after 10 years in City’s development program.

He got his first professional contract in 2015 but went on loan to F.C. Halifax Town the following year. He appeared in five games for Halifax, scoring one goal. In 2016, he returned to Sheffield, who spotted his potential and welcomed him back into their first squad. In August 2016, he made his debut for ‘the Blades’ in a 0-0 draw against Leicester City in the EFL Trophy. The next game, he was named to the starting eleven in a 2-1 loss at Walsall.

His star was rising when he was called up to the Wales national squad four days later. He signed a new deal with Sheffield United in October 2017, tying him to the club until the summer of 2021. Bournemouth signed the young midfielder at 11.5 million pounds in July 2018. He signed a four-year deal at Dean Court, which he renewed and extended not quite a year later. This young man has recently been playing well and has a promising future in football!

Career

In July 2018, Brooks joined AFC Bournemouth of the Premier League for a fee of £11.5 million. In doing so, he signed a four-year contract with the club and was assigned the number 20 jersey. Brooks made his Premier League debut in the first game of the 2018–19 season, starting in a 2–0 home win against Cardiff City. He scored his first goal for the club, and his first goal in the Premier League, in a 2–1 home win against Crystal Palace.

Following on from his goal against Palace on 1 October, Brooks scored in Premier League victories over Watford; a 0–4 away win, and Fulham; a 0–3 away win, over the rest of the month. This impressive run of form saw him receive the club’s Player of the Month award for October.

The run of good form continued for Brooks, scoring the first brace of his career in a 2–0 home win against Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League, on 22 December. Manager Eddie Howe commented after the game that he was “pleasantly surprised” by the start Brooks had made to his Bournemouth career, commending his attitude and tactical understanding of Bournemouth’s style of play. His performances in December led to his second Player of the Month award, being named the club’s Player of the Month for December. Brooks scored the second goal in his club’s comprehensive 4–0 home victory over Chelsea, on 30 January, putting in an impressive showing against one of the league’s traditional top-six teams.

In March 2019, he signed a new long-term contract with the club, with Howe commenting: “This contract means he can concentrate on developing his game with us, and it’s been an excellent start to David’s AFC Bournemouth career.”

After scoring again in the Cherries’ 5–0 away win over Brighton on 13 April, Brooks finished his maiden top-flight season with Bournemouth with seven goals across 33 total appearances. Due to his performances for the club throughout the 2018–19 season, he was nominated, for the PFA Young Player of the Year award, alongside names such as Manchester City duo Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva, and Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford.

In a pre-season friendly against Brentford, Brooks suffered an ankle injury which was reportedly set to leave him sidelined until mid-October. In December 2019, following a prolonged period on the sidelines, he underwent a second ankle operation, with the view of being sidelined until mid-March. Commenting on the injury, Brooks said in February that “[I] didn’t know it was going to be six months and I don’t think the physios would have thought that either”.

On 11 March, he returned to training with the rest of the squad after nearly eight months out through injury. Having returned from injury, Brooks scored his first goal of the season, in a 2–1 loss to Man City, on 15 July. He finished the 2019–20 season with nine league appearances and one goal as the Cherries were relegated to the Championship after a five-year stay in the Premier League.

After relegation from the Premier League, Brooks returned to the Cherries side as a sub in their 3–2 opening-day win against Blackburn Rovers. Brooks scored his first goal of the season, a brace, in a 1–3 away win at Birmingham City. In November, Brooks was named Championship Player of the Month after scoring two goals and adding three assists in three matches

On 14 August, Brooks received the first red card of his senior career (after a double-yellow); in a 2–1 away win against Nottingham Forest in the Championship. He also scored the opener in the game.

Brooks was eligible to play for his birth country, England and Wales – the latter through his mother, who hails from Llangollen.

On 15 May 2017, he was called up to the Wales U20 squad for the 2017 Toulon Tournament. He later withdrew from the Wales setup, instead being called up to the England U20 squad for the same tournament. England won the tournament and Brooks was given the Best Player award, having scored in the Final.

On 25 August 2017, he was called up to the Wales U21 squad for the European Championship qualifiers against Switzerland and Portugal. Brooks made his debut for the side on 1 September 2017, in a 3–0 victory over Switzerland, scoring the second goal of the match.

On 28 September 2017, he was called up to the Wales senior squad, for two World Cup qualifiers against Georgia and Ireland. Brooks made his senior debut for Wales, on 10 November 2017, coming on as a substitute in a 2–0 defeat against France.

He scored his first goal for Wales; in a 2–1 away defeat to Croatia after coming on as a substitute.
