399 Danny Reet
Position : Forward
Played : 2006-07 (on loan from Mansfield)
Appearances : 6
Goals : 0
Danny was signed on loan in March one of a trio of players signed to make up the numbers for the rest of the season. He was originally with Sheffield Wednesday but came to people's attention when he scored 4 goals in 6 games in a loan spell at Bury in December 2005. Two of them were against Mansfield who were quick to sign him in January 2006 but despite 11 goals in 40 appearances they were now looking to offload him.
Danny never actually started a game for us but didn't make much impact as a substitute. He was generously proportioned which gave him some presence upfront but he didn't seem to have much idea how to make it count. One of my companions said "He isn't reet good is he ?" and he wasn't.
The following season he went on loan to Alfreton Town until agreeing a release with Mansfield in March 2008. He briefly went to Dinnington but spent most of the 2008-09 season with Buxton. The trail goes cold after that.
