Daniel Webb

Daniel Webb is an English defender/striker who was born in Poole on 2nd July 1983. Daniel is the son of former Southampton player David Webb, who starred for Chelsea during the 1970s. The younger Webb began his career with Saints, but failed to make a single first team appearance before his 2000 departure.

Webb left The Dell in December 2000 to link up with his father, who was managing Southend. He was a regular for The Shrimpers during 2000/01. He scored his first goal for the Division 3 outfit in a 3-3 draw with Plymouth on 24th April 2001. Webb dropped out of first team reckoning at Roots Hall not long after his dad left the club. He jumped up a division later in the 2001/02 season, signing for third tier unit Brighton on loan. Webb helped the Seagulls win promotion to Division One, scoring in a 2-2 draw with Notts County on 23rd March 2002. He had another brief stint with Brighton during 2002/03, playing alongside future Premier League stars Bobby Zamora and Steve Sidwell.

Webb signed for Hull in December 2002. He was only used as a bit part player by manager Peter Taylor, and would be farmed out to Lincoln in March 2003. Webb would return to Humberside before the end of the 2002/03 campaign. The following term he made a handful of appearances for The Tigers' promotion winning team. In December 2003 he joined Cambridge in a temporary spell until the end of the season.

Webb moved to Cambridge on a permanent basis for 2004/05. It was not a happy time for player or club. Webb was involved in plenty of controversy, engaging in an on-field bust-up with teammate Luke Guttridge, which brought him a fine from manager Herve Renard. When Cambridge were relegated to the Conference at the end of the season Webb was released from his contract.

Webb had a short spell at Weymouth at the start of 2005/06, before signing for Yeovil. David Webb was once again involved in the deal in his role as club executive. He featured only intermittently before joining Rusden & Diamonds and then Woking on loan. Webb would return for one final League One appearance for Yeovil on 5th May 2007, a 2-0 win at Gillingham.

After leaving Yeovil Webb joined Maltese side Marsaxlokk, who were managed by Englishman Brian Talbot. He took part in the club's Champions League qualifying tie with FK Sarajevo, before departing to embark on a career in the lower reaches of English football.

Webb's next port of call was Wimbledon. He was part of the team that won promotion to the Conference South, but struggled for consistency. Webb then bounced around several non-league clubs, including Chelmsford, Sutton United and Havant and Waterlooville. In late 2008 he moved to Salisbury. He enjoyed a fairly successful 2009/10 season, but was forced to leave the club prior to 2010/11 when Salisbury were demoted two leagues. He spent a year with Bath City before moving back to Salisbury in 2011, initially on loan. In 2012 Webb signed for Dover.
