mkdons.com takes a look at the career of winger Danny Green, who signed a two-year deal with the Football Club on Friday.
Born in Harlow, London, Green was on the Charlton books as a schoolboy but left the club at 15 years old before joining Northampton Town’s academy. The Cobblers signed the midfielder on professional terms, however, he moved to Nottingham Forest in 2007.
Green’s time at Forest was blighted with injury, however, and following his release from the City Ground a chance meeting during a coaching course with Martin Hayes, the then-Bishop’s Stortford manager, opened up a route back into football through the non-League.
After a season with the Woodside Park club, Green caught the attention of Dagenham & Redbridge and joined them on a free transfer. Green made a huge impact in his first season with the Daggers, playing in every league match and scoring in the League 2 Play-Off final, one of his 14 that season, to help them win promotion.
Green’s red-hot form for the Daggers continued in League 1 and he went on to score a further 13 goals in a further 46 appearances before Charlton signed the winger on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
In three seasons at the Valley, Green scored six goals in 74 appearances while also enjoying a short spell on loan with the Dons where he featured six times.
