Goalkeeping Switch

Danny Greaves

Goalkeeper Danny Greaves has today left the club to re-join his former team Mangotsfield Utd.

Goalkeeping Coach, Steve Hale commented:

"When Bully left for Forest Green Rovers I was keen along with Brian to get Danny in. He was fantastic in pre-season both in games and training and everything was ticking along nicely and Danny was keen to play again at this level. What became hard though for Danny and perhaps people didn't realise this was that he works in Evesham but lives in Bristol and his wife is expecting twins. He also picked up a hamstring injury which he has been battling to play with. Gradually all these things combined were making things hard for Danny and his family and general way of life are far more important than a game of football. It makes sense that he plays his football closer to home so that he can combine that with spending more time with his wife at this important time. Danny is a good goalkeeper and a top lad and showed a brilliant attitude during his short time with us. I only have good things to say about him and we wish him and his wife well with their impending step into parenthood and a successful season back with Mangotsfield."


The club has been fortunate in the meantime to be able to secure a very good replacement in the form of young Mike Green, the former Bristol Rovers professional who has also played on loan at Blue Square North neighbours Gloucester City.

Steve Hale went on to say:

"I spoke to both Booky (Steve Book, goalkeeping coach at Cheltenham Town) and Ian Harris (former goalkeeping coach at Newport County & Eastleigh) who have both worked with Greener and both have told me good things about him. He has a good physique for a goalkeeper and has a good background with his time at Bristol Rovers. He still has aspirations to break back into the professional game and we will do all we can to help him achieve that just as we did with Bully and i'm looking forward to working with him."

Green made his debut in Monday's game against Chesham and will be in the team to travel to Redditch Utd on Saturday.
