Defender becomes Darrell Clarke's latest signing

Darrell Clarke is slowly, but surely, building a squad capable of challenging at the top of the Conference Premier League next season and today he added defender Danny Leadbitter to his squad.

The 23 year old Geordie graduated through the ranks at Newcastle United, for whom he signed a pro contract in 2007.

Although he made a number of reserve team appearances for the Magpies he was unable to break into the first team and was released in June 2011.

That same month he moved to the other end of the country when he signed for Torquay United  and he made his debut for the Gulls in a 0-1 defeat against Bradford City, at Valley Parade, in October 2011.

There were 15 appearances in his one season at Plainmoor and in August 2013 he signed for Hereford United, for whom he made 40 appearances last season.

Essentially a right back, he can play in any position across the back line and his versatility is likely to prove to be invaluable as the season progresses.

Interviews with Daniel and manager Darrell Clarke will take place at the training ground tomorrow.
