Winchester born Darren was a trainee professional with Norwich City in the
1993/94 season. His misfortune was to be in the same batch of
young Canaries as current number one Andy Marshall. Darren later
played for Hampshire side Eastleigh but the November 1998 issue
of Team Talk magazine informed me that
Darren had left Dr Martens Southern Division side Bashley to join
Colden Common. He left Bashley just as Stacey Kreft joined the club. After playing for minor league
sides Winchester Castle and Bournemouth Poppies, Darren joined
Dr Martens League side Bashley on June 18 2001.
Along with teammates Kevin Brewster and Martin Beck, Darren quit
Bashley on 1st February 2002 to team up with their coach Bob Higgins
at Winchester City. However it appears this move had the blessing
of Bashley whose squad was large. In return Winchester would let
Crowfoot act as cover for Bashley where needed.
Darren is currently playing for Bemerton Heath of the Wessex
