Goalkeeper coach

Dan Hanford

Coaching staff



Date of birth



Former-Blue Dan Hanford joined the coaching staff at the club in the summer of 2021.

Hanford, 30, born in South Wales, started his career with Swansea before joining Rochdale at the age of 16, where he worked under current manager Chris Beech.

A spell with Clitheroe preceded a move to the Glenn Hoddle Academy in Spain. He returned to England to play for Hereford, but it was a troubled period for the Bulls and he accepted an offer to play in Malta, where he picked up silverware during a successful season with Floriana.

Two seasons with United followed and he played much of the 2014/15 League Two season between the posts, making 27 appearances in total through that campaign.

More experience was gained with Gateshead and Southport as he set about working on his coaching and mentoring qualifications.
