Career[edit]

Exeter City[edit]

Seaborne was born in Barnstaple, Devon.[3] A defender who plays at centre half or left back, he began his football career as a trainee with Exeter City, and signed his first professional contract in May 2005. He spent several spells on loan, to Clyst Rovers in the 2004–05 season, Tiverton Town in September 2005,[4] and Taunton Town in January 2006,[5] before making his Conference debut in the 3–1 home win over Dagenham & Redbridge in April 2006.[6] Also in the same month Seaborne scored his first career goal, a header from a corner, in the 4–0 home win against Crawley Town. He was rewarded with a new one-year contract,[7] but, unable to get a regular place in the team, was loaned out again, this time to Conference South side Dorchester Town.[8] In June 2007 he signed a new one-year deal,[9] but a broken leg sustained as the result of a bad tackle in a pre-season friendly against South West Peninsula League side Bodmin Town kept him out for three months.[10][11] Once restored to the team, he formed a successful defensive partnership with Matt Taylor, was handed the captaincy, and led them to promotion via the play-off final, in which they beat Cambridge United 1–0.[12][13] Seaborne signed a new two-year contract before the 2008–09 season, and was a regular in the side as Exeter were again promoted, this time to Football League One.[4]

Southampton[edit]

On 13 January 2010, Seaborne signed for Southampton for an undisclosed fee on a three and a half-year contract.[14] He made his debut on 16 January playing alongside two other recent signings, José Fonte and Jon Otsemobor, in a 1–1 draw at Millwall.[15] Seaborne, alongside seven other professional players was released by Southampton in June 2013.[16]

Loans[edit]

On 9 November 2012, Seaborne joined Charlton on a one-month loan deal.[17] On 17 January 2013, he joined Bournemouth on loan for the remainder of the season.[18][19]

Yeovil Town[edit]

On 19 July 2013, he signed for Yeovil Town on a two-year contract, following his release from Southampton.[20][21] Seaborne made his Yeovil debut, on 3 August 2013, in their 1–0 Championship victory over Millwall.[22]

On 28 November 2013, Seaborne joined Football League One side Coventry City on loan until 5 January 2014.[23]

Coventry City[edit]

On 14 January 2014, Danny joined Coventry City permanently after a successful loan spell.[24]
