Katherine Pierce, marketing manager at Jumbo Games, commented: “Dan is one of the best football freestylers in the world and he is going to be one of the star attractions on our stand this year. He is a great character and certainly isn’t a ‘one-trick pony’ – we are sure that he will keep visitors entertained with his incredible skills.”
