1099 Dan Crowley

Biography

Attacking midfielder Dan Crowley joined the Tigers in January 2021 on loan from Birmingham City and came off the bench to make an impressive debut against Accrington Stanley.

Daniel Patrick Crowley was born in Coventry but his football talents as a teenager were revered far and wide. Up to the age of 16 he was part of Aston Villa’s youth system and by the age of 15 he was appearing in Villa’s under-21 side. In 2013 he moved to Arsenal with Villa receiving a compensation payment, and he signed a professional contract for Arsenal on his seveneteenth birthday. Crowley was seen by manager Arsene Wenger as one of the Gunners most valued talents and he enjoyed loan spells at Barnsley, Oxford United and Dutch side Go Ahead Eagles – his time at Barnsley was cut short by manager Lee Johnson who praised his talent but suggested Dan was suffering from an excess of self-confidence. His loan at Oxford was also ended early when Crowley reacted poorly to being omitted from the Us’ first eleven. In 2017 Crowley signed for Dutch side Willem II but was slow to settle in new surroundings and was loaned to another Dutch side SC Cambuur. After 50 appearances and six goals for Willem II, Crowley signed for Birmingham City in July 2019 and in his first season at St Andrews he impressed with his attacking threat, making 41 appearances in all competitions. However at the start of the 2020/21 season Crowley was out of favour with new Birmingham boss Aitor Karanka and made only four appearances by January 2021, opening the door to Hull City to take him on loan.

Crowley qualified to play for England and Ireland, the latter through his grandparents. He played at under-16 and under-17 level for both countries then in 2015 he won four under-19 caps for England. He subsequently declared that he wished to play for Ireland at senior level.
