David Wall joined Fitzroy from West Heidelberg and made his senior VFL debut in 1967. Over the ensuing decade he played a total of 132 league games, and kicked 120 goals. Serviceable and honest rather than flamboyantly skilled, the Lions used him in a variety of positions, but he played his best football on the forward line. After leaving Fitzroy at the end of the 1976 season he played briefly for Northcote in the VFA.
