Player Profile

Date Of Birth: 24th July 1989

Previous Clubs: Wakefield FC, Huddersfield, Woking, Cheltenham, Alfreton Town, North Ferriby United

Pen Pic: Denton is a striker who started out playing for Wakefield FC. He signed for Huddersfield town for £60,000 in 2008. He had a series of loan moves, to Woking and Cheltenham Town as well as twice back to Wakefield, as he struggled to break into the Terriers’ first team squad.

Permanent moves to Alfreton Town and Worksop followed until the huge striker – standing at 6 foot 7 – linked up with manager Billy Heath at North Ferriby United in 2014. He won the FA Trophy with them in 2015 and then scored 21 league goals in the Vanarama National League North last season. He signed for the Shaymen in the summer of 2016, on a two-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

Denton’s height combines with a strong leap to give him one of the most threatening aerial abilities in the division. Goals and assists have not been hard to come by.

Denton gives any team problems with a more direct dimension. His most notable display was on his league debut, netting a hat-trick at Nuneaton Town.
