Peter William Daniel (born 12 December 1955 in Hull) is an English former professional football player and now club manager. He is currently manager of non-league side Ossett Town.



Daniel joined his local club Hull City on schoolboy forms in 1969, becoming an apprentice in 1971, and finally turning professional in September 1973. He played five seasons at Boothferry Park in the Second Division.

He played seven times for the England Under 21 side while with Hull, making his debut on 27 April 1977 in a 1-0 win over Scotland U21 at Bramall Lane.

In May 1978, he was transferred to First Division Wolverhampton Wanderers for a fee of £182,000. Here, he was converted from a full-back into a defensive midfielder and won a League Cup winners' medal in 1980, gaining an assist in the goal that defeated Nottingham Forest. In total, he made 194 appearances for the Midlands club, scoring 16 times.

In May 1984, he moved to NASL side Minnesota Strikers, returning to England in August that year, costing Sunderland £15,000. He played in the 1985 League Cup Final for Sunderland, this time picking up a runners-up medal.

In November 1985, Daniel moved to Lincoln City and was appointed player-manager in March 1987. He failed to stop Lincoln sliding down the Fourth Division, with the club becoming the first to suffer automatic relegation to the Conference at the end of season after losing their last game away to Swansea City. Lincoln had been in seventh place and in a play-off position in the previous January.

He resigned in May 1987 and in July that year joined Burnley as a player. Whilst at Burnley he played against his former club Wolves in the 1988 Football League Trophy Final at Wembley, collecting a runners up medal. He left Burnley and league football in 1989, joining North Ferriby United.

He was manager of North Ferriby United between 1990 and 1993. He later managed Pontefract Colleries, Winterton Rangers and Denaby United before being appointed manager of Goole Town in November 2000 (from where he was sacked in September 2001[1]). He later returned to manage Pontefract, but resigned in December 2003.[2]

He began his second spell as manager of Winterton Rangers in November 2004.[3]


Ossett Town

He was appointed manager of Ossett Town in December 2009,[4] with the club achieving its first point in five games in his first league match in charge - a 2-2 draw at Kendal Town on 5 December 2009.[5]
