Avenue Legend Danny King Departs the Avenue

posted in: First Team News, News | 0

We can today confirm that Goalkeeper Coach Danny King has left the Club.

King came in under Mark Bower & Danny Boshell at the start of the 2020/21 season, working alongside Avenue’s #1’s such as Dan Atkinson, and Will Huffer who later returned to professional football at Bradford City.

Danny also coached Johnny Saltmer, then with both George Sykes-Kenworthy and Liam Hall, the latter making an EFL move in August, signing a professional deal with League 2 side Wrexham AFC. 

Sykes-Kenworthy would also earn himself a professional contract in the National League with York City, after training under King since December 2021.

Danny King had this to say on his departure; 

“It was a tough decision and a lot of thought has gone into it, but it is the right time for me to move on. 

“I’ve really enjoyed my time at the club and got to know and work with some amazing players and people. 

“I wish the new management team, the players, staff and volunteers behind the scenes and the fans all the best in the coming months.”

While we are sad to see Danny leave the Horsfall, we’d like to put on record our thanks for his commitment to the Avenue over the last 3 seasons, and wish him well in all his future endeavors.
