Having broken in to the Reading first team at the end of the 1999-2000, Darius Henderson continued to develop at a steady rate in 2000-01.

His first-team opportunities were very much limited by the consistent form of Martin Butler and Jamie Cureton but he made a handful of appearances, mostly from the subs' bench.

A powerfully-built bustling striker, he was a regular in the Royals' reserve team that did so well in the Avon Combination in 2000-01.

Darius joined Gillingham in January 2004 with a contract to June 2007 before joining Watford in August 2005 with a four-year contract that was extended to June 2011 in September 2007.

He joined Sheffield United in July 2008 with a four-year contract.

Darius joined Millwall in June 2011 with a two-year contract.

He joined Nottingham Forest in January 2013 with a contract to June 2013 that was extended to June 2015 in June 2013.

Darius joined Leyton Orient in August 2014 with a three-year contract that was cancelled in July 2015.

He joined Scunthorpe United in July 2015 with a one-year contract that was cancelled in February 2016.

Darius then joined Coventry City with a contract to June 2016.
