Danny O'Brien

Position : Defender

Danny joined Runcorn Linnets from Cammell Laird 1907 ahead of the 2016-17 season and brought stability to midfield before converting to his now regular role of right full back, where he has produced some highly-accomplished displays.

The Linnets' consistency en route to the 2017-18 Hallmark Security League Premier Division championship was personified by Danny, who rarely put a foot wrong throughout. He was our Millbank Player of the Month for three successive months and for good measure won the league's equivalent Macron-sponsored award for December.

Danny is not only effective in defence but also going forward. He is also one of our set-piece specialists with his corner, free-kick and penalty taking.

Danny's dozen goals in 47 starts in 2017-18 featured nine successful spot-kicks.

The player had been at Southport as a teenager, making two appearances as a substitute in the 2004-05 season, scoring a goal in their Lancashire Junior Cup quarter final against Burscough.

Danny later joined Lairds for the first of his two spells with the Birkenhead club before following Tony Sullivan to Witton Albion in October 2014 as the former Lairds manager's first signing at Wincham Park.

Runcorn Linnets would like to thank Arthur & Sheila Thompson who have kindly sponsored Danny O'Brien.
