Danny Mayor – Footballer PNE

from wikipedia 26/02/2014

Daniel John “Danny” Mayor (born 18 October 1990 in Leyland, Lancashire) is an English footballer who currently plays for Bury, where he plays in midfield as an attacking winger.

He came through Preston North End’s youth ranks. On 15 December 2008 he was given his first professional two-and-a-half-year contract with fellow youngster, Adam Barton.

On 5 March 2009 he joined Tranmere Rovers on a one month loan deal. Tranmere manager Ronnie Moore was reported to say: “He is a hard working winger with the ability to go past people and has a trick up his sleeve.”

He was handed his League One début against Northampton Town on 7 March 2009.

Mayor made his debut for Preston North End on 16 January 2010 against Bristol City. He came on as a substitute in the 70th minute for Richard Chaplow. Preston lost the match 4–2. It was Darren Ferguson’s debut as Preston manager. He was handed his full home debut in a game against Scunthorpe United on 10 April 2010, a game which Preston won 3–2. Danny scored his first League goal for Preston against his old club Tranmere Rovers on 26 September 2011.

His next goal came against Hartlepool United, which went on to win the goal of the season for the club’s 2011/12 season. Mayor allegedly told manager Graham Westley before the 2012/13 season that he would like to play at a higher level, with fellow team-mate Jamie Proctor making the same statement, despite the pair both being contracted to the club and part of the manager’s plans.

He joined Southend United on an initial 28 day loan deal on Tuesday 12 February 2013, going straight into the first team to play against Cheltenham Town that night. Mayor played 5 games before returning to Sheffield Wednesday.
