David Morgan joined Nottingham Forest as a fourteen year-old and progressed through their youth ranks. He was still just seventeen when called into the Northern Ireland Under-21 squad for the first time in May 2012, and he made his debut against England that November. By that stage he had already gained firstteam experience while on loan at Conference side, Lincoln City. That season he also spent time on loan with Dundee, playing his only SPL game as a substitute in a 5-0 defeat by Celtic.

Another loan spell in 2013/14 saw Morgan back in the Conference with Tamworth, however on his return to Forest he found himself surplus to requirements. He had grown frustrated at the managerial roundabout at the City Ground which saw ten different men (including "caretakers") in the hot seat During Morgan's six year association with the club, meaning that he was unable to make his mark, particularly with the repeated spells out on loan.

Morgan didn't move far from Nottingham after his release, joining up with Kevin Wilson's Ilkeston in August 2014. The following summer Morgan followed Wilson to Nuneaton Town.
