David 'Sash' Alan Narey, MBE (born 12 June 1956 in Dundee) is a former Scottish international footballer, who spent 21 years with Dundee United, coinciding with United's most successful era, under the management of Jim McLean. Many considered Narey to be the most naturally talented member of the side during these years. Although best remembered as a central defender, he was equally comfortable in a midfield position.[citation needed] Narey is probably best remembered for opening the scoring for Scotland against Brazil in the 1982 FIFA World Cup.

Narey won three trophies in his career with Dundee United, the Scottish League Cup in 1979 and again in 1980 and the Scottish Football League Premier Division title in 1983. He also captained United when they played in the 1987 UEFA Cup Final against IFK Gothenburg, which they lost 1-0 in the first leg in Sweden and drew the return leg at Tannadice 1-1, for a 2-1 defeat on aggregate. United, did however, win the UEFA Fair Play award for their performances in the UEFA cup that season.

Upon leaving United, Narey joined Raith Rovers, who were playing in the Scottish Football League First Division. He was part of the Raith team that won promotion to the Premier Division as First Division champions. He also played in the Raith team that defeated Celtic in the 1994 Scottish League Cup Final, winning the Man-of-the-Match award for his performance in the game.[citation needed]

Narey was the first Dundee United player to represent Scotland. He ultimately won thirty-five caps, scoring one goal (the afore-mentioned strike against Brazil). He represented Scotland at the 1982 and 1986 FIFA World Cups and last played for his country shortly before the 1990 FIFA World Cup.

David Narey was inducted into the Scottish Football Hall of Fame on November 15, 2010.
