David Window played one season for the Norwood Football Club in 1932. He had been a member of a Willaston premiership in 1930 in the Gawler Association. The following year, Window played on the Adelaide Oval in a curtain raiser for Willaston against Walkerville (North Adelaide Association Premiers). The game was played prior to the Port Adelaide-Sturt league second semi-final and Willaston won by three goals.
In 1932 he impressed Norwood officials with his performances in the pre-season internal trials when he was seen as a promising junior, with the physical attributes to become a very good ruckman/follower.
Window made his league debut against North Adelaide in the opening round of the 1932 season. He was named as follower changing in the back pocket. He kicked a goal, but the Redlegs lost the match. He was named in the best players in the second round game against Port Adelaide.
A regular in the league side, Window played 16 matches before suffering an injury against Sturt late in the minor round.
Unable to then regain his spot in the seniors, he was named in the second ruck in the Reserves Grand Final loss to North Adelaide.
Window resumed his career with Willaston in 1933. In May of that season he was injured shortly after the start of the Willaston versus Gawler South match at Gawler and was taken to hospital. He played again soon after, won another flag with the club later that year, and continued with Willaston for several more seasons.
His brother Clarence played league football for Glenelg, and his nephew Gary won a Magarey Medal playing for Central District
