A former England Under-18 international, Danny Butterfield established himself as a regular member of the Grimsby Town squad in 2000-01, playing either in defence or midfield depending on the formation employed.

He showed outstanding form in the vital end-of-season games as he helped the club to escape relegation.

Fast and tenacious wherever he is played, it seemed only a matter of time before he was sold to a bigger club.

Danny had been voted 'Young Player of the Year' by the Mariners' fans for the past two seasons.

His contract at Crystal Palace was extended to June 2010 in February 2008.

Danny joined Southampton in July 2010 with a one-year contract that was extended to June 2012 in May 2011 and to June 2013 in February 2012.

He joined Carlisle United in August 2013 on non-contract terms.
