Danny Hylton is a hard working striker who progressed through the youth team at Aldershot Town to sign a professional contract. Danny scored regularly for the U18s and made his first-team debut as a 16-year-old in the club's pre-League days. He went on to earn a professional contract and scored on his first Football League start against Bury in October 2008. Danny, whose strong running causes problems for opposition defences, was mainly used as an impact player coming off the bench during 2009-10 as he continued to build up his first-team experience. He continued to add to his appearances in 2010-11, although often used in a midfield role, and started more than half the Shots? League Two fixtures.
