Midfielder moves to the Impact from Bradford PA

 
 
ATFC are delighted to confirm the signing of midfielder Danny East from Bradford (Park Avenue).
 
Danny is the sixth new addition to the squad ahead of the 2019/20 campaign and is a versatile player who can operate both in defence and in central midfield and will prove a valuable asset to the Reds squad ahead of the new season.
 
East came through the ranks at Hull City but was released after just two senior outings, however he did play regular first team football at Northampton Town in a loan spell back in 2012. Danny would then join Portsmouth in 2013 but injuries halted his progress at Fratton Park where he made just 19 appearances in two seasons.
 
A loan spell at Aldershot followed in the 2014/15 season before moving to Grimbsy Town in June 2015 where he was a crucial element in the Mariners promotion campaign into League Two via the play offs. A new deal didn’t materialise for Danny at Grimsby before he made the switch to Guiseley in July 2016 however injuries blighted his two year stint with the Lions.
 
East would then join Bradford (Park Avenue) in June 2018 where he rediscovered his fitness and was a regular feature for the Avenue last season, who missed out on promotion last season losing to Spennymoor in the play offs.
 
Billy Heath on Danny East:
 
“Danny is a fantastic, versatile player who joins us to operate in midfield. He’s played a lot of games from central midfield and has plenty of experience in league football. He’s been at Grimsby Town and Guiseley in recent years and had a good season with Bradford last year.”
 
“It’s another strong signing for us; he has great feet, passes the ball well and is excellent with the ball. He can do the hard stuff too and loves to compete. We are pleased with the signing and the squad is really starting to take shape now.” 
 
Welcome, Danny!
