Needham Market are delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper Danny Cullum.

Danny, brother of former Needham Academy graduate Hugh, was at Ipswich Town from the age of eight up until his release at the end of the 2023/24 season, having played for their Under-21s.

During that time, Danny was part of the Town Under-16s that won the PDL Cup at Coventry City in April 2022, as well as the Under-18s team that won the U18 PDL Cup at the same venue the following month, before winning the Premier section of the SuperCupNI in Northern Ireland, held in July the same year.

Danny will provide excellent cover for Marcus Garnham when required, with Assistant Manager Tom Rothery delighted to have Danny on board,

"Danny is an important signing for us and great for Marco to have someone of Danny’s quality to work with. Danny has good experience at step 4 from last season and already in training has shown what he will add to us, and we need more depth to the squad now going up a level which will help create not only competition but also allow players to rest when required. Kev and I are really pleased to get Danny on board."

Danny said, "I’ve always admired the club, and especially last season I was always checking results on my phone after games and would always look at Needham’s first. Like I say always being a spectator, I’ve seen the highs they have achieved over the last few seasons, promotions, FA Cup first round, FA trophy quarter final against Stockport, and hoping within my time here we re-live some of those moments and advance to later round of competitions and standing strong in staying the NLN."

The club would like to welcome Danny and look forward to seeing him in action for the club.
