Ray Daniel

Welsh international centre half Ray Daniel was a key figure in Arsenal's 1952/53 League Championship success.

A former Swansea amateur, he signed professional at Highbury in October 1946 and made his league debut in Arsenal's 2-0 win over Charlton in May 1949.

He succeeded Leslie Compton in the heart of defence and played in the 1952 FA Cup final, scoring five goals in 87 First Division games before being sold to Sunderland for £27,500 in June 1953.

Later with Cardiff City, Swansea and Hereford United player-boss, he worked in the licensed trade and was a sub-postmaster in Swansea. He died in November 1997.
