*BS*Dover Athletic have today signed central defender Daniel Webb.*BF*
The 28 year-old has joined Whites on a one year deal, joining from fellow Blue Square Bet South side Salisbury City. He has Football League experience with Southend United, Hull City and Cambridge United.
Daniel’s signing completes Nicky Forster’s defensive line-up for next season. The Dover boss has two goalkeepers and eight defenders in place so can now concentrate on bolstering his attacking options.
The six foot one inch centre back made over 100 appearances in the Football League between 2000 and 2007. He was then part of AFC Wimbledon’s play-off winning side in Ryman Premier playing 33 times and scoring nine goals that season. Daniel often featured as a target man striker at this stage of his career before he was converted to a central defender.
Webb joined Salisbury in 2008 and spent two seasons there until the club’s two-tier demotion to the Southern League. He moved to Bath City, staying in Blue Square Bet Premier, where he made 29 appearances. Danny was loaned to Salisbury in 2011 and soon made the move permanent, a regular at the heart of their defence last season.
Daniel is the son of former Chelsea player David Webb, who has previously managed Southend, Chelsea and Brentford.
