Keeper Daniels up for the challenge

First published in Sport by

FC Clacton goalkeeper Liam Daniels is up for the challenge of following in Joe Fowler’s footsteps.

The latter was named as last term’s supporters’ player-of-the-year, in his first season at the club.

He became only the second goalkeeper to be nominated by the supporters, in addition to being crowned as joint players’ player with Louie Newland.

He then opted to join Thurlow Nunn League rivals Brantham Athletic in mid-July.

However, Seasiders boss Glenn Eldridge wasted no time bringing Daniels in from relegated Woodbridge.

And the shot-stopper is looking forward to the challenge of showing what he can do, at the Rush Green Bowl.

“Joe did very well during his time at Clacton,” said Daniels, who kept a clean sheet in the club’s last pre-season friendly – a 0-0 draw at home to Haverhill Borough on Saturday.

“I know he was very popular here and in some ways he’s a tough act to follow.

“But I’m up for that challenge and happy to step into anyone’s shoes.

“I like to push myself and hopefully I can show everyone what I can do."
