Daniel Anthony "Danny" Seaborne (born 5 March 1987) is an English professional footballer who plays for Scottish Premiership club Partick Thistle. Seaborne began his professional career at Exeter City, having risen through the club's youth system, he signed his professional contract in May 2005. Seaborne had numerous loan spells during his time at Exeter, including moves to Clyst Rovers, Tiverton Town and Dorchester Town. In January 2010, Seaborne signed a three and a half-year contract with Southampton. Having made 44 appearances for the club, Seaborne was released by the Premier League side in June 2013. Following his release, Seaborne spent time at clubs including Bournemouth, Yeovil Town and Coventry City. In August 2014, Seaborne signed for Scottish Premiership side Partick Thistle on a two-year contract.
Seaborne was born in Barnstaple, Devon. 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, and Taunton Town in January 2006, before making his Conference debut in the 3–1 home win over Dagenham & Redbridge in April 2006. 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, but, unable to get a regular place in the team, was loaned out again, this time to Conference South side Dorchester Town. In June 2007 he signed a new one-year deal, 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. 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. 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.
On 13 January 2010, Seaborne signed for Southampton for an undisclosed fee on a three and a half-year contract. 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. Seaborne, alongside seven other professional players was released by Southampton in June 2013.
On 19 July 2013, he signed for newly promoted Championship side Yeovil Town on a two-year contract, following his release from Southampton. Seaborne made his Yeovil debut, on 3 August 2013, in their 1–0 Championship victory over Millwall.
On 11 August 2014, Seaborne signed for Scottish Premiership club Partick Thistle. Seaborne signed for the club on a two-year contract. He scored his first goal for Partick in a 1-1 draw against Kilmarnock at Firhill in December 2014.
