Having only signed up for a further season with us a few weeks ago it seemed likely that Steve Burr would be building a side around him and that he would then feature in the side more than he has previously. Since joining us from Tamworth in January he made half of his eighteen appearances from the bench and when he did come on he looked to be a classy player.
The kind of player that had age on his side to improve further under the tutelage of Burr and Gary Whild.
He isn't a bad goalscorer either and his three goals for us all came in cup games. At home to Droylsden in the FA Trophy then in the next round he scored the only goal for us against Luton Town as we went crashing out. His third goal came in the Worcester Senior cup rout of Evesham Utd when we put six goals past them to send us on our way to possible cup glory.
Instead he has now decided his future lies elsewhere and he's on the search for new employers.
Where he ends up is anyone's guess but Burr has said that he will do everything in his power to keep him at Aggborough. Dan will also command a fee due to his contract and because he's under twenty four.
The best outcome to all of this is that Dan will sit down with Steve, change his mind and stay with us. The fans certainly hope so.
Out of interest Dans' father is Wayne Bradley, the chairman of Alfreton Town.
