Daniels bagged 30 goals for the youth-team last season and played a leading role in Blackpool’s run to the quarter-finals of the FA Youth Cup.
A memorable campaign got even better when Daniels made his first-team debut off the bench during Blackpool’s final day defeat to Peterborough United.
On Tuesday night, Daniels played his first game since coming out as gay playing for a Blackpool XI side, that drew 1-1 with AFC Blackpool.
Daniels was a second-half substitute, with Blackpool’s goal coming via Brad Holmes early into the game at Jepson Way.
The likes of Jack Moore, Tayt Trusty, Joe Strawn, Dannen Francis and Ewan Bange all featured, alongside seven trialists.
