Daniel James Ventre (born 23 January 1986 in Liverpool) is an English footballer who plays for Derry City in the League of Ireland. He has previously played in the Football League for Accrington Stanley, and from 2007 to 2013 had played in the League of Ireland for Sligo Rovers.
His only previous clubs were Accrington Stanley and Chester City, although he only made first-team appearances for Accrington. He helped Stanley win the Conference National in 2005–06 and played for them in the Football League the following season.
Ventre joined Accrington Stanley after a successful trial period in 2005 after his release from Chester City. He went onto appear 15 times for Accrington Stanley over the Conference winning season at the age of 19. After Promotion to the Football League he earned a one-year contract. Ventre could not force his way into the first team so went out on a one-month loan to Southport playing three games. He was recalled back to Accrington Stanley where he broke into the first team. He played four games before he took a bad fall in a game against Bury on Boxing day 2006 fracturing his left leg. He was out injured for 10 weeks. Ventre appeared once more time for Stanley, before being released to find regular first team football.
Ventre joined Sligo Rovers in July 2007 and made his debut against Shamrock Rovers, which Sligo Rovers went on to win 2–0. He scored his first goal for the Bit o' Red against Cobh Ramblers earlier this season scoring Sligo's second goal in a 3–1 victory. Ventre has captained the team on many occasions including in the 2009 FAI Cup final defeat and was one of three players that captained the club during the 2010 season who lifted both the FAI Cup and League of Ireland Cup trophies. The fans voted him as their player of the year for the 2009 season. His first goal came against Shelbourne in the previous round of the League Cup, while his first league goal came against Bray Wanderers in September. The 2012 season saw him captain Sligo Rovers to their first title in 37 years.
