Daniel John Webb (born 2 July 1983) is an English former footballer who played as a defender who was recently employed as Assistant Manager at League Two club Leyton Orient. He previously served as first-team manager in 2017. Currently First Team Coach at Chesterfield FC.
Webb started his career as a trainee at Southampton but failed to break into the Saints’ first team squad. In December 2000, Webb was brought to Southend United for a fee of £10,000 by his father David, who had recently taken over as manager of Southend in September. Webb went on to make 39 appearances for the Shrimpers between 2000 and 2002, scoring four goals, but found his first team opportunities limited after his father’s resignation in October 2001, following which Daniel had two loan spells at Brighton & Hove Albion in 2001–02 and 2002–03, where he made a total 16 appearances and scored one goal against Notts County, however a permanent move failed to materialise.
In 2002 Webb left Southend, moving to Hull City on a free transfer, where he went on to make a total of 18 appearances, scoring one goal, between 2002 and 2004. However, Webb always had a bit-part role at Hull and was loaned out to Lincoln City in his first season at the club, where he scored once against Bristol Rovers. Webb returned to Hull making a handful of first team starts at the beginning of the 2003–04 season, which earned him a Division Three runners-up medal. He scored his only goal for the club in a Football League Trophy tie against Scunthorpe United in November 2003. His first team opportunities became limited in the second half of the season and he was sent out to Cambridge United on an initial one-month loan.
