Daniel Hall

Norwich Career: Trial (March and July 2001)
Current Club: Solihull Borough (Southern League)
Date of Birth: 29/12/1981(Rugby)
Nationality: English


When 19 year old left back Daniel Hall was released by Coventry in March 2001,he wrote to the Canaries requesting a trial. His wishes were granted and he played for the Reserves in their 1-1 draw with Fulham on 27th March. Daniel had made 1 appearance for the Sky Blues. In June 2001, Teamtalk reported that Kidderminster had invited Daniel to train with them although Norwich were again said to be keen. Indeed Daniel came on as substitute in Norwich's 3-2 win at Colchester United on 25th July 2001. Daniel also had a trial with Bournemouth that summer.

League football obviously eluded Daniel as he later played for non-leaguers Rugby. He is decribed by Steve Whiney in the Ultimate Book of Non-League Players 2003 as "having a very good football brain and is an excellent passer of the ball who is capable of filling a defensive or midfield role" Danny has won Player of the Season awards in his first two seasons, and is being very versatile having played left-back, left midfield, centre midfield and sweeper in his spell with the club. A fit
player who has great vision and passing ability. Missed a large part of the 2003/4 season due to a cruciate ligament injury

Danny was one of seven Rugby players to follow former Rugby manager Tony Dobson to Solihull Borough in May/June 2005.

Speculation in mid July 2006 suggested Danny would be returning to Rugby
