Cadamarteri chose Town over League One rivals Doncaster Rovers, where he went on loan during the season, and Millwall.

As soon as Cadamarteri heard Andy Ritchie was interested, Cadamarteri was interested straight away. The striker who can play either flank told the Town official website:
"When I heard Andy Ritchie was interested in bringing me here, I immediately wanted to know more".

It is reported that when the Town manager was at Barnsley he gave a trial to the former Sheffield United and Bradford star but Ritchie was sacked before an agreement could have been made.

A year ago Cadamarteri had been out of the game for six months after been tested positive for traces of a banned substance called Ephedrine in his system that Cadamarteri says he had bought over the counter cold remedy without realising its ingrediants.

After been kicked out by Bradford, Cadamarteri wasn't aloud to train with a club and was cast a side from football. After the ban he signed for Grays Athletic on a pay-as-you-play deal before Leicester City offered Cadamarteria route back into League Football.

Cadamarteri is keen to put the past behind him after off the field troubles tarnished his career.
In 2000 he was convicted of hitting a woman outside a Liverpool nightclub and was given 180 hours community service.

Cadamarteri is keen on been a part of Town's push for promotion this coming season,
"I've had quite a bit of experience in this division, but I'm only intending to play in it for one season with Town," he told the club's official website.

"I want to use my experience to help us win promotion, then carry on up in the Championship."

Cadamarteri's career

Danny Cadamarteri hails not far from Huddersfield, born and based in Cleckheaton. He started off his career at Premiership Everton where he had graduated from the acedemy. He burst on to the scence scoring a fine goal in a Mersyside derby against Liverpool, scoring the winning goal in slick style. That capulated Cadamarteri and he was hyped up as the next big thing but when Howard Kendell left Everton with Walter Smith replacing him off the field antics and a fall out with the manager coinciding with loss of form, prompted Everton to ship him out on loan to Fulham.

He eventually moved on his home town club Bradford for two years before being released due to Bradford's financial problems and was signed by West Yorkshire rivals Leeds United, who has just been relegated from the Premiership at that time, He was soon sold off to Sheffield United for ?50,000 scoring one goal in 21 appearances for the Blades before moving back for a second spell at Bradford.

His first season back at Bradford he was banned for six months and was kicked out by the Bantams. After completing his ban Grays Athletic took him on board making one appearance for the non-league side before Leicester City offered him a deal back in League Football.

Cadamarteri scored a fine goal in the 3rd round of the FA Cup against Fulham to earn a reply last season but was loaned out to Doncaster Rovers making 6 appearances scoring one goal.

2006 Grays Athletic 1 (0)
2006-2007 Leicester City 11(1)
2007 (Loan) Doncaster Rovers 6 (1) describes Cadamarteri as:

On the field is assets are his enthusiasm and self belief backed up by a bit of pace and fair ball control. He can pose a threat to opposing defences with his trickery but, for a foward, he hasn't been too prolific in the number of goals he's scored. On the downside, Danny can be a bit too greedy with the ball and not too aware of other players around him. Town fans are keeping their fingers crossed that manager Ritchie can get him back to the form that he showed in his early career and, additionally, it might help now that Danny has returned to his local area.

The Terrier-Bytes team welcomes Danny Cadamarteri and wishes him all the best.
