Sports student Danny fended off stiff competition to be selected by Northamptonshire Football Association to represent the region at a national football training camp. He did all of this while juggling his passion for football with his studies at college.
“I have loved football since I was small. I remember kicking a ball around at the age of four and have been playing in clubs since I was 10. Like many other young lads my dream was always to play professionally. Unfortunately I wasn’t quite good enough but football will always be in my life and coming to Northampton College meant I could continue to pursue my love of sport, and get qualifications at the same time.
“I attended a Young Leadership Event in 2011, joining a small group of other young people from across Northamptonshire. I guess I impressed the leaders because I was then selected to represent the County and attend a regional event – one of only three young footballers to get through to this stage. I now hope to get into the national sports camp, but in the meantime I was spotted during the regional leadership event and asked to manage a regional Under 7s football team. I guess I already have a packed year ahead!
“Largely, thanks to everything I’ve learnt at Northampton College, I think I now want to be a coach and perhaps I will later train as a referee.”
