Biography


Born in Wigan, Danny Williams began his career with Daisy Hill, and had spells with FC United of Manchester, Clitheroe, and Kendall Town in the lower reaches of English football. A loan spell with Chester brought Danny his first career silverware – the 2012- 2013 Conference North League Title and the 2013 Cheshire Cup.

The winger moved to Scotland to sign for Inverness Caledonian Thistle under Terry Butcher in August 2013. Danny was a regular in the side during his three seasons in the Highlands, making 108 appearances for the club, scoring 5 times.

Danny was part of the Inverness side that won the Scottish Cup under Butcher’s successor, John Hughes, in 2015. In March 2016, the winger signed a pre-contract agreement to move to Dundee in the summer, along with Inverness teammate James Vincent.

Danny made his debut for the club in a 1-1 draw with East Fife in the League Cup Group Stage in July 2016. Early in his Dundee career, the winger assisted in a 2-1 defeat to Rangers, and a 1-1 draw with Hamilton Academical. Danny’s form tailed off as the season progressed, and he found himself on the bench more often.

Danny was sent off in a disappointing 2-1 defeat against Ross County in April 2017, part of a dismal run of form which cost Paul Hartley his job. The winger featured just twice in the rest of the season under Neil McCann, in a 3-2 victory away to Motherwell and a 4-0 loss to Hamilton on the last day of the season.

Danny continued to struggle for game time the following season, making substitute appearances in the League Cup to Buckie Thistle, and in the League against Hamilton and Aberdeen. Danny made no further appearances for Dundee, and was released in October 2017 to find a new club.

The winger has since played for Accrington Stanley, AFC Fylde, and FC Halifax Town.
