Player Profile

Dan started his football career at Sheffield United from 16-18, then played for Barrow in the National League, and Southport before playing for AFC Liverpool, where he played in 19/20 scoring 22 times in 26 games. "I’m really excited to get going, I buzzing to sign for FC and just can’t wait to get started. I had a really good season with AFC Liverpool and I think a lot of that was down to me really enjoying my football, the manager there Chris Anderson was brilliant and just said to me go out and express yourself and it was what I needed, the performances followed and it was a great time. I got a call off Brian Richardson and my first question was about the dressing room, I know everyone first thinks about the fans and how amazing they are, as well as the players and the infrastructure of the club but for me it was a question of ’Am I coming into the right dressing room, is it a good set of lads’? and Brian and Reno said they’re a really close set of lads which is vital for me. The connection with the fans looking from the outside is amazing, the rapport the fans have with the players is something that is really appetising for me so when I got the call from Brian I was buzzing that the interest was there and just wanted to get it done. Reno couldn’t show me around Broadhurst because of the situation so he sent me a load of Youtube videos and I’d already seen loads of them, looking at the atmosphere and thinking to myself ’yeah, I fancy a bit of that, it looks incredible’. In terms of what to expect from me on the pitch I’m a big lad at 6’4" but I’m mobile and a good mover, and I pride myself on scoring goals but I get the best out of people around me, I enjoy linking up with people and while scoring goals is great, if you’re winning games and you’re contributing to the team as a whole then that’s just as satisfying, I think I’ll get the best out of the people around me and let’s go one better and win the title this season."
