Dan Davis is a notable freelance sports journalist with years of experience reporting on a wide range of events and producing cutting-edge reports, exclusives and in-depth interviews.
He started his career covering Premier League club AFC Bournemouth during his time at university in 2016, allowing him regular access to home matches and press conferences. Other freelance roles quickly followed and he soon made the step up to several senior positions, all whilst studying for a bachelor's degree in Multimedia Journalism.
After graduating, Dan took up work on the MailOnline sports desk, first as a freelance writer and then as a contracted member of staff. He was trusted with hard-hitting, sensitive stories and spoke to sources often to produce detailed transfer pieces. Notably, Dan also played a prominent role in the investigation into Football Index, with his work helping bring justice to those affected by the company's collapse.
It was here that Dan began to passionately and expertly cover Formula 1, with his live blogs on races, quotes pieces and features reaching a large, global audience.
Last year, Dan became Reach PLC's AFC Bournemouth correspondent, allowing him to return to report on his boyhood club. Again, this role saw him work with managers, players, agents and senior figures, all with the aim of offering unparalleled insight into the inner workings of one of the country's most prominent and ambitious clubs. He provided several exclusive transfer stories, too, significantly increasing his social media audience.
Toward the end of the season, Dan stepped back into the wild world of freelancing and balances his duties with GPFans alongside other positions.
Away from writing, Dan is a sports fanatic and can be found watching almost every big event live. He also has a hamster.
