Daniel Robert "Danny" Harrison (born 4 November 1982) is an English footballer with Chester.

Career[edit]

Born Liverpool and formerly a resident of Upton,[2] Harrison is a product of the Tranmere Rovers youth system. Joining the club as a 13 year old, he was granted his first team debut in the 2001–02 season at home against Wigan Athletic. Harrison was a regular in the centre of midfield in the Brian Little era, but under Ronnie Moore he found opportunities harder to come by prompting a move to a new squad. He signed for Rotherham on 25 May 2007 along with Dale Tonge.[3] He scored his first goal for the club against Sheffield Wednesday in the League Cup. He then bragged a brace against Dagenham & Redbridge. His next goal came away at Milton Keynes Dons, where he scored an equaliser with a 25 yard screamer 10 minutes from time.

He was released by Rotherham in May 2012.[4]

On 7 June 2012, it was announced that he had rejoined Tranmere Rovers on a one-year contract from 1 July 2012.[5] The following summer he dropped into the Conference National when he joined neighbours Chester.
