Dan spent most of his playing time in the south west, with the majority coming with non-league side Truro City.
He also spent time with Dorchester Town before quickly moving into coaching. He began coaching with the Grecians before stepping up to take the role as under-18s coach with the club.
Dan continued to work with the young players at City and has played a hand in the development of youngsters such as Ethan Ampadu, Jack Sparkes and Archie Collins, amongst others.
When Matt Taylor departed his role as under-23 manager to step up to take the first team manager job, Dan then stepped up to take charge of the under-23s as well as be a key figure in Matt’s work with the first team.
Dan guided the young Grecians through qualification for the Under-23 Premier League Cup for the 2018/19 season.
