Our sponsored Torquay United Women’s player Danni Wyatt has been appointed assistant manager of the club.
In an announcement last night (Wednesday 25 January), the club said: “Danni will work closely with manager Steve Elswood in developing and supporting the next stages of the club’s progression both on and off the pitch as the Yellows continue their push for promotion up the women’s football league pyramid.
“Danni will continue to play for the squad … and her support to manager Elswood in key areas over these crucial final stages of the season will be invaluable.”
Danni told us: “I’m over the moon to be appointed within the management structure. I think it’s a role I can naturally transition into and hopefully bring a strong player perspective in to help Steve and Alan [Wyatt, the head coach] manage the club, as they already are doing a fantastic job.
“It simply strengthens us behind the scenes and gives me a new challenge. My focus is to continue playing on match days and that will continue to be my priority. I’m looking forward to achieving what we can this season and i’m so grateful for the opportunity.”
Weltch Media first sponsored Danni in the 2017/18 campaign, when she helped Torquay to third place in the South West Regional Premier Division and to the final of the Devon Cup and won the goal of the season award. Last season she helped Torquay to a sensational victory in the Devon FA Cup Final and was named club player of the season.
In 2020, she was among our friends who featured in the popular comedy promo video With a T.
