The camp at Hillsborough College, which is held in partnership with organisation Coach2Include and specialises in delivering coaching disabled children, will from September be held on a weekly basis and the Owls’ player visited to show his support to the programme.

As well as answering young participants’ questions, Daniel also took part in a training session and game that saw him share skills and techniques with the children.

Isobel Dunn, Premier League co-ordinator for the community programme, said all of the youngsters were excited to playing alongside a professional player.

She added: “Daniel was a real inspiration and role model to all the players. Everyone really enjoyed meeting him, getting to ask questions, having their photos taken and most of all playing a game with him. Each player took home a souvenir from the day as well as a shining example to look up to.”
