Danny Haynes was born in Peckham in 1988 and he was a product of the youth academy at Charlton Athletic before being released at 16 and joining Ipswich Town's academy.

He was part of the Ipswich team which won the FA Youth Cup, the Blues beating a Southampton side including Theo Walcott and Gareth Bale in the final over two legs. Danny made his first-team debut in September 2005 and gained unsurprising popularity with the fans when he scored the winner in the last minute for Ipswich against arch-rivals Norwich City, completing a record of having scored against Norwich at every youth and senior level. He was later given the nickname "Canary Crusher" before transferring to Bristol City for an undisclosed fee.

Danny left Hibernian at the end of the 2013/14 season and returned to Notts County before joining Crewe Alexandra on a one-month loan in October 2014.

He went onto play for Cheltenham Town, Ebbsfleet United, Boreham Wood and Cray Wanderers.
