Danny Kelly

Position
Defender

After spells with the youth teams at Cambridge United, Peterborough United & Histon, Danny joined Norwich City in 2007. Successful performances in the youth and reserve teams saw him rewarded with a one-year professional contract in 2009. However, he never played for the first team and left to join League Two side Barnet in the summer of 2010 making his debut against Chesterfield. Danny is also a former youth international captain of the Republic of Ireland and has most recently appeared for Cambridge City since 2014, he joined the Ives three seasons ago to strengthen the attack but has also proved his ability as a centre back where his ability to read the game and be in the correct position is second to none. The early indication this season is that we are more likely to see him in the back line than as an attacker but his aerial ability will always mean that he remains a threat at dead balls.
