A product of the Spurs youth system, mobile defender Danny Maddix failed to make the Tottenham first team, but made a 20 year football career and won a cap at international level.
A central defender, Danny had the height to win the ball in the air and the composure on the floor to bring the ball out of defence, but his slight build perhaps led to him losing out to more physical opponents. After making his way through the youth ranks and going out on loan to Southend United, he left Tottenham for QPR in 1987 on a free transfer, where he enjoyed a good run in the side, making captain and becoming a fan favourite. Danny then moved to Sheffield Wednesday after four years at Loftus Road, enjoying a good spell at the Owls until they were relegated to the third tier in 2003, when he was released.
Returned to London to sign for Barnet and had seventeen months in the first team, before taking over as joint caretaker manager with former Spurs reserve team-mate Ian Hendon until the end of the 2004-05 season. Maddix played out the final stages of his playing days at Grays Athletic.
