DRFC Former player becomes football agent

DRFC Former player becomes football agent

Retired former Doncaster Rovers player Sean McDaid is staying within the game as a football agent.

The 25 year old was forced to retire from the game last season, after a career ending knee injury during his time at Carlisle United.

McDaid has joined Leeds based agency HN Sports, the company that represented him during his playing days.

The defender was determined to stay in the game after the heartache at having to retire from the game at such a young age.

Speaking in the Cumberland news and star , McDaid said, "Nothing is going to replace playing but I`ve been offered another route to stay in football and I`m enjoying it so far.
"I`m still planning to do my coaching badges but this opportunity has come up to look after some players I`ve played with, and some younger ones coming up."

McDaid spent almost five years at Doncaster and helped the side win their first domestic trophy in their history in 2007 when he was part of the side that won the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy.

He also played his part in Rovers promotion back into the second tier of English football, for the first time in fifty years, when they won the League One play off final in 2008. Unfortunately for him, his season was cut short when he suffered a dislocated knee in training in April that ruled him out for over eighteen months.

Rovers released the versatile left sided player last summer and he joined Carlisle where he was an ever-present last season before suffering another knee injury in October that finished his career.

His two former clubs will meet in a benefit match for him at Brunton Park on July 23rd, with McDaid moved by the generosity of his former clubs, "I didn`t expect anything like that.
"The two clubs have been brilliant for me and the game will be a massive help for me and my family after such an uncertain time.
"I will do anything I can to help either club in the future," he continued.

McDaid is still planning to take his coaching badges as he plans for his future in the game.

I'm glad he's still involved in football in some way. Lets hope he can send a few players the way of Rovers.
