Career[edit]

Club[edit]

Meadhaven United[edit]

Daley had played with Meadhaven United as a midfielder since 2004 under the guidance of the late coach, David Hunt. Daley bagged 12 goals in the 2008/2009 Digicel Premier League (DPL) season, which lead to him winning the Junior Player of the Season award in the DPL. Daley also won the Player of the Season award the same year in the National Under-21 League.[2][3][4] For the 2009/2010 DPL season, Daley initially signed with previous champions, Tivoli Gardens FC, on a season-long loan.[3] However, the transfer was later made permanent.

Tivoli Gardens FC[edit]

Daley had a strong 2009/2010 DPL season, leading his team to the end of the first-round final. He has scored 10 goals for Tivoli Gardens as of April 2010. In 2010/2011, Daley led Tivoli Gardens to their fifth Premiere League title.

Preston North End[edit]

After having a successful trial period over the summer, Daley signed a two-year deal for English League 1 club Preston North End on transfer deadline day Wednesday 31 August 2011.[5][6] He made his debut in the 2–1 defeat against Southampton in the League Cup, but was substituted at half time.

Daley's contract was mutually terminated on 13 January 2013.[7]

Tivoli Gardens FC[edit]

Following his release from Preston North End in early 2013, Daley, in April 2013, returned to Tivoli Gardens. [8]
