But was not the end of the world for Dave, in fact, it was a new beginning for him and his successful career.

Dave Gardner Met First Wife, Davinia At Social Club
Not only did football introduce him to the celebrity lifestyle, but he also mixed up with the Hollywood royalty and was granted membership at the Kate Moss' social club, where he met an actress Davinia Taylor, his wife-to-be.
English actress Davina is a daughter of Alan Murphy, known as the "Loo Roll Millionaire", whose net worth is around £180 million.
The couple began dating in 2002 and got married in a lavish ceremony in 2003. Dave and his wife had their first child, a son Grey born seven years after the wedding.
However, Davinia's party-loving lifestyle led to fractions between the husband-wife pair, and Dave cited her irrational behavior as the reason after filing a divorce in 2011.
The acrimonious divorce saga ran for full two years and led to Dave being awarded the custody of their son and a hefty divorce settlement, boosting his net worth.
