Daniel Handling (born 6 February 1994) is a Scottish footballer who plays for Scottish Championship side Dumbarton. Handling has previously played for Hibernian as well as Berwick Rangers and Raith Rovers on loan.

Early life[edit]

Handling grew up in Haddington, East Lothian and attended Knox Academy.[1]

Career[edit]

He made his first team debut for Hibs as a substitute against Aberdeen on 14 May 2011,[2] becoming the fourth-youngest person to play for Hibs.[3] Handling agreed a new contract with Hibs later that year.[4]

Handling was loaned to Third Division club Berwick Rangers in March 2012. He scored two goals on his Berwick debut, a 2–1 win at Peterhead on 24 March.[5] He scored six goals in his first four games for the club, which gave Berwick a chance of qualifying for the end of season playoffs.[6]

Handling made 24 appearances for the Hibs first team in the 2014–15 season, scoring three goals.[7] He then missed all of the 2015–16 season due to suffering a knee injury in a pre-season game.[7] Handling was an unused substitute in a 2016–17 UEFA Europa League tie with Brondby, but then suffered another injury.[8] This prevented him from playing until late January, when he appeared in a development squad match.[9] On 31 March, Handling moved to Raith Rovers on an emergency loan deal.[10]

Having negotiated his release from Hibernian, Handling joined Scottish Championship side Dumbarton in July 2017.[11]
