Date / Year of birth: 7th June 1980

Position: Midfielder

5' 7" tall Polish midfielder born in Brzesko who spent six seasons with his hometown club Okocimski Brzesko from 1999/00 to 2004/05 inclusive and represented the region of Malopolska in the UEFA Regions Cup amateur tournament during the 2002/03 campaign.

In 2005 Daniel moved to England and in August of that year he signed for Margate. He made his debut as a substitute in a 2-0 defeat at Ramsgate in a match played for the Kent Messenger Cup on 13.8.05 but then had to wait for international clearance before playing again.

Daniel's next appearance was as a substitute in a 2-2 draw with Slough in an Isthmian League Premier Division game at Hartsdown Park on 17.9.05 and on 20.9.05 he came off the bench again in a match at Bromley. Daniel took to the field after an hour and on 73 minutes he scored with a brilliant curling free-kick from 25 yards out. The Non-League Paper said he "ran the show" after coming on whilst the Isle of Thanet Gazette said Daniel's impact had shown Margate "had an ace up their sleeve". The game finished as a 2-2 draw.

After his eye-catching display at Bromley Daniel made his first full appearance in a 1-0 home win over Carshalton in the FA Cup on 24.9.05 and he then started Margate's next four matches too. On 1.10.05 he scored with another free-kick in a 1-1 draw at Walton & Hersham and the Thanet Times described it as a "superb" strike. The paper said Daniel "curled a beauty over the wall and into the top corner" from 20 yards out and Margate manager Chris Kinnear commented "It was an exceptional goal, it was like a Ronaldinho free-kick the way he got it up and over the wall before it dipped. If you saw it on the telly you'd be raving about it; it was no fluke because he did the same at Bromley."

In its report on a 1-1 draw with Billericay at Hartsdown Park on 4.10.05 the Thanet Times said Daniel "showed he's human by hitting the wall from a 25-yard free-kick" and he played twice more, making his last appearance in a 3-0 win at Bashley in the FA Trophy on 15.10.05. Daniel was released at the end of October 2005 having scored twice from eight outings (three as sub).

In November 2005 he played for Sutton's reserves and Daniel also turned out for Windsor & Eton's second string during February 2006 before Dorking signed him in March 2006.

He played four times (twice as sub) for the Surrey club in the Isthmian League Division 2 before the end of the 2005/06 campaign.

In the summer of 2006 Daniel joined Southern League Division 1 South & West club Windsor & Eton and made his debut for them in a game against Bashley on 19.8.06.

At the end of October 2006 he moved on to Walton & Hersham but Daniel only played twice in the Isthmian League Premier Division for them before linking up with Division 1 South outfit Molesey in December 2006.

He scored twice from 14 league appearances for Molesey before the end of the 2006/07 season and Daniel stayed with the club until September 2007 when he joined Ashford (Middlesex).

Although he featured regularly for Ashford's reserves Daniel only made one substitute appearance in the Isthmian League Premier Division and in November 2007 he signed for Corinthian Casuals who played in Division 1 South.

Daniel only managed three substitute appearances in the league for Casuals before drifting out of football early in 2008.

He resurfaced at the start of the 2008/09 campaign when he rejoined Molesey and Daniel spent the whole season there but he didn't play for any senior clubs in England after that.
