Danny Halligan
First Team Coach
  • NZF Senior C License.
  • 27 years coaching experience at senior, junior and youth levels - National League and Club.
  • Danny became our First Team Coach after completing five successful seasons coaching Ferrymead Bays, winning the title in 2017, as well as the English Cup in 2016.
  • Danny initially joined the star-studded, all-conquering Christchurch United team in 1987 to win three National League titles and two Chatham Cups, before embarking on a professional career with Brisbane United in the Australian League.
  • He played as Central Midfield.
  • Hobby: watching and learning from all sports played at a high level.
I began my coaching career as a player/coach as I enjoyed the extra responsibility and the impact I could have on the team. Now that I no longer play, coaching was the natural fit for me to continue to be involved and to help players learn and develop.
