David “Rocky” Armour was born in Geelong and had played for Geelong and East Perth before being recruited by Norwood in 1978, the club’s centenary year.
The tall utility originally joined Geelong from the St. Mary’s Football Club and made his League debut against Collingwood in 1974. He opened his senior career in fine style, scoring goals with his first two kicks, and snaring four for the match.
Armour was a member of the Geelong Reserves team that won the 1975 flag when he was named on a half-forward flank. In three seasons with Geelong he played 19 league games, and in 1977 he transferred to East Perth in the West Australian Football League.
Armour played 18 games in his only season for East Perth. He was named at centre half back in East Perth’s Grand Final loss to Norwood in the Ardath Cup.
