David B. McKay played U/19's foortball for Carlton from 1974 to 1977, and reserve grade football from 1974 to 1978. Not to be mistaken for the Carlton Champion David McKay, also there was a David G. McKay who played around 1970 with the Blues.
Four-time Carlton Premiership player David McKay – that’s David Robert James “Swan” McKay – believed that DB McKay later pursued an on-field career with Glenelg. “We actually used to call him ‘DB’, although I have no idea what the ‘B’ stands for,” McKay said. “DB was a flanker, quite a handsome boy as opposed to the rest of the rabble. DB’s father Mal was the butcher at Strathmore who bought the business from Phil Pinnell’s father George - and Phil worked there for Mal during school holidays. DB ended up working as a car salesman in South Australia, but I think he’s back in Melbourne now.”
David B. McKay was recruited from Oak Park.
He didn't play a senior game for Carlton.
