Neil Danns: “I’m privileged to be back”

29 May 2023

Neil Danns has spoken to us about his delight at returning to Tranmere Rovers as assistant manager, and how much he is looking forward to learning from working with manager Ian Dawes and technical director Nigel Adkins.

“It’s unbelievable. I was here a few years back, had an incredible time, got the feel for the Club, the fans, everyone involved, and I’m just really happy to be back.”

Neil had a spell as manager of Macclesfield last year after ending his playing career with them, and feels he can use the experience he gained there as a coach in his new role with Rovers.

“I was in charge at Macclesfield, had a really great experience there, and then the opportunity came to come back to Tranmere and once that opportunity came, I knew it was probably something that I couldn’t turn down.

“After speaking with the gaffer and the Chairman, it just seemed like the right fit so I’m privileged to be back.

“Within football, it’s all about learning and progressing and obviously my time at Macclesfield really helped me in that sense. I’m coming in to Tranmere now to work alongside the gaffer, Parky (Andy Parkinson) and everyone involved and to keep learning, keep progressing, and hopefully add something to the first team squad, I’m really looking forward to that.”

Neil also spoke about the prospect of working with Nigel Adkins and how much he can learn from him.

“Nigel’s had a fantastic career, got so much experience, and we’re all looking forward to learning from him. Already having a few conversations, I can see the benefits that we’re all going to get from working alongside Nigel.”
