Danny Flitter


Danny has always been involved with football from a young age playing academy football for Brighton & Hove Albion and Youth level for Wycombe Wanderers FC. He continued to play non-league into adult football with Woking FC and Bashley FC but unfortunately had two serious knee injuries. During this time, he took my coaching qualifications and has always enjoyed coaching football to children.

After a period of time spent travelling, Danny qualified as a Sports Therapist and started working a nineteen year career in medical teams in professional football. This was a very enjoyable experience working with many talented therapists from a variety of nationalities. The clubs are listed below that he worked for in football. Danny has continued coaching football and runs his own coaching business in the evenings and games at the weekends.

He is now looking forward to working as a lecturer in Sports and Exercise Therapy to pass on his expertise, experience and knowledge to students who also have a passion to wanting to have a successful career working as a Sports Therapist.
