Danny explained how the switch to S10 came about, reflected on a glowing playing career, and shared his hopes for the future.
Danny, welcome to Hallam FC., How did the move come about?
“Out of the blue to be honest! I had always suggested to close friends and mutual friends between Steve, Ryan and me that one day I would love to get involved with the management side of things. Now I’m older -and a bit fatter- but I never expected it so soon. I’ve always loved my football , and so I wanted to stay involved now that I don’t play as much , so although was shocked at first when Steve (Whitehead) got in touch , the belief he showed in me that I would do a great job meant that I could not turn it down - so here we are!”
