Middlesbrough

On 6 July 2009 Coyne joined Middlesbrough F.C. on a two-year deal, to challenge Brad Jones (footballer) as the regular first team goalkeeper.
It was soon established that manager Gareth Southgate found Coyne far superior in Danny Coyne goalkeeping experience to Brad who when returning from a short injury layoff was left on the bench.
The 2009/10 season started well for the shot stopper; Danny Coyne was the only keeper in the CocaCola Championship to keep clean sheets in the first four games of the season. For a short period Coyne was dropped as first choice keeper after a 5-0 thrashing against West Bromwich Albion, only to return after a subsequent poor performance by Middlesbrough first choice keeper Brad Jones. Coyne has mostly been Middlesbrough's second choice keeper, first behind Jones, then when Danny Coyne departed Jason Steele (footballer) became first Gordon Strachan number then Danny Coyne successor Tony Mowbray number 1 and even when Steele was out injured Mowbray has brought in Paul Smith (footballer born 1979) and then Carl Ikeme on loan from Nottingham Forest F.C. and Wolverhampton Wanderers F.C. respectively.
