Maidenhead United have signed centre-forward Danny Whitehall.
During his time in English football, Whitehall’s clubs include: Liverpool, Rochdale, Southport and Marine. Son of former Marine, Southport and Rochdale striker Steve Whitehall, Danny developed through youth football to making a name for himself over the pond in the United States.
The Warrington-born striker played for the likes of Nebraska Bugeaters FC, Hastings College, SIUE Cougars and Chattanooga FC when he switched from the English game to soccer. Maidenhead United Chief Scout, Lee Devonshire, explained:
“Danny was highly recommended by new coach Eddie Keen and his father Kevin Keen, whose dad played at West Ham. We had to be patient as he was in at a few league clubs but when he trained with us he looked impressive thus we have brought him on board.
“A centre-forward with great confidence in front of goal and two in two is not a bad start.”
Magpies manager Alan Devonshire is delighted to have him on board for the new season:
“Himself, Jake and Josh means we now have three strikers up there and with the games Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday, we need those characters in our squad.”
